  4. I love your patterns :) I have your book and I have purchased some off of etsy as well. I have been meaning to ask about the apple and miss worm pattern--On the apple, I did the back post crochet row that makes the pretty braid on the outside, but then every time I do the next row, the braid disappears. I'm stuck. How do I do the next row?

  5. Heee, I feel silly. I wrote that I was having trouble with the back post crochet row, but I found the diagram in your book and suddenly it made sense and I am having no problems now. So thanks and sorry I asked for help before I found your stitch index.

  7. My Husband got me your "seriously cute crochet" for xmas and I have just fallen in love with your book. My daughter loves going through it. I am a newbee crocher and still learning how to read and crochet. One of the things I am geting confused on is when you say for example in this pattern R6-12 sc 35 do you mean 35 for easch row or a total of 35? Hope you don't mind pointing me in the right direction.
