It's been two years since I wrote the pattern for the Tunisian Resolution Scarf and frankly I'd quite forgotten about it. You see I'm a fickle who likes to try different things, so after that initial bash at Tunisian crochet I really didn't pursue it (maybe) as I should, well I might give it another go sometime and try some different stitches but not just yet. But a few days ago I got a question regarding this pattern, it's about the starting chains. As I really couldn't remember much about this pattern I had to review my notes, which wasn't much, and thought the best way was to make it again myself.
Have you ever tried to follow your own notes? Apparently things that were really clear and made perfect sense at the time could be a tad fuzzy after a while. And my reader was right, my instruction for picking up stitches from the starter chain was one chain short! Wow, those poor people who tried following my instructions must be very good at deciphering patterns (there are currently 108 projects on Ravelry, of which 2 are my own) that they have created wonderful items from the pattern.
So to clarify: each pattern is 4 stitches, to make the repeats it requires #repeats x4+1. There are also 2 selvage stitches, 1 on each side. My scarf pattern has 5 repeats, therefore the calculation is 5x4+1=23
Luckily the rest of the instructions are comprehensible enough and I was able to follow them and complete my piece.
