I love these patterns. Thank you so much for sharing them! The cat has turned out perfectly but I'm having trouble with the witch. When you say in rows 3 & 4 to "dc 3" and "dc 5" can you share which stitches you are running these DC into? I've tried a couple of times but can't seem to get it right.

...and only 14 months later:

Hi there.
Thank you for stopping by. It's been a rough
couple of years. I enjoy all the love from all of
my readers and commentators.(Commenters?)

If you are still wondering about the pattern:
1st - my sincerest apologies
2nd -I have a bad habit of working stitches
into the turning chain and forgetting to note
it in the instructions. These two steps are
more accurately described as follows:

Row 3) dc into each of the next 2 dc and dc 1
into the turning chain.

Row 4) dc 1 into base of turning ch, dc into
each of next 2 dc, 2 dc into turning chain of
previous row.

Do you read charts? I'm very visual and charts help me a lot so I put up a couple two days
after this post on 10/29/08

Hope that helps. Let me know.

Thanks again. Sorry again.

Always, C
