  1. SC in the first stitch and DC in the next two stitches (not the same stitch). So, SC, DC 2 is over three stitches. Hope that helps!

  2. I am confused with the border and can't see it in the picture. Is it chain 6 then a sl stitch....so you are ending up with a lot of loops on border?

  5. Can you tell me how you arrive at the add 3 or subtract 3 to make the size you want on the blanket. I've never been able to figure that out. Thanks.

  6. The count of the pattern on the middle section is the count os 3...sc, dc2 so it can be increased or decreased by 3.

  7. I don't understand the double crochet 2 after the single crochet. Can you clarify what you mean by double crochet 2,please?

    1. It is worked in 3 stitches. Single crochet, double crochet, double crochet.
      You can look at it that way or say it out loud as: single crochet (in one stitch), double crochet in the next two stitches. SC, DC 2.
