  1. I am fairly new, but I do have a question… you start with 121 stitches. next row, you skip every other stitch, reducing your stitch count to 60… in the following row, would you not need to do 2 sc in each stitch to get the count back to 121? Again, I am new, so please forgive me if this is an ignorant question. I just want to make sure before I get too far into this one.
    Thanks!

    1. When you do you single crochet row, you SC in top of bead stitch and the stitch between 2 bead stitches (above the skipped stitch of previous row). This once again gives you the correct stitch count.

  2. Breann, this has been so fun for me. I have not done any of these stitches before and it’s very gratifying to have them turn out so well AND to get the correct count for each row, thus far 🙂 Can’t wait for next weeks stitch!! Have a great weekend

      1. I find the puff stitch to be tough to pull thru 7 loops. Any tricks? I have tried a smaller and larger hook. My yarn is caron simply soft.
        Thanks

        1. Hi Brenda, I used the same yarn and it took me awhile. What really helped was making sure that I was constantly “pulling up” to loosen each loop on my hook. Every time it felt like more than necessary, by that was when it actually worked, looked good, and was consistent! Hope that helps.

        2. I had difficulties too. I discovered if you make sure the loop on hook is loose and the wrap arounds are loose and pulled high, it makes it so much easier to pull it through.

  3. Hi Breann, I normally get the link to the CAL in an email, and didn’t get one this week. I’m hoping I just got missed somehow. When I open the link direct from the Facebook page, I can an enormous page, and no option to download or print it. Has anyone else had this issue?

    Love the pattern so far! Thanks so much
