  • I love this afghan and the special stitches used. But I am a visual person and need either graphs or a video to understand how some stitches are done. And I don’t mind admitting that I don’t understand *skip 2 chs, dc in next ch, ch3, work 3 dc round post (vertical bar)of last dc made. Is that the dc made before the ch3? If there had been a name given for the stitch maybe I could have found a video on how it’s done but I don’t know what the stitch is called. Would really appreciate some help, want to use this pattern!
