  1. Hello, I am confused on a few things, mostly because I don’t know. I was wondering if you would help me. I am newish to crocheting and was wanting to make this for my baby due on halloween. What does (dc,ch 2, 2 dc) all in the same stitch mean? I’m really just having a hard time making a Circle Granny square in general. Do you have a youtube video I can watch? The ones I have watched don’t have 11 dc in the ring to begin with and that is already throwing me off. I would really appreciate it! This blanket is so cute I can’t wait to make it!!

    1. Hi! At this point in the square you are making a corner. You will make 1 dc in the stitch, then ch 2, and make 2 dc again in the same stitch. You will have a total of 4 dc (including the beginning ch) in the same stitch with 2 ch in the middle. I don’t have a video, sorry. I hope this helps!
