Debbie, I crochet some and it sounds to me the sc in the 2 chain space, the 2 chain space should be the fiist space of the last row you just completed. Did the previous row start with a dc? That could be your 2 chain space. if you haven't figured it out, pm me and I'llgive you my fax and see if ican help you KayJanie, it's not that. I've redone two different areas of this top and have followed it to a "T". For instance, with this next row that I'm on it says to sc in the first 2 ch space. There is NO 2 ch space with the previous row that I worked on. The entire pattern has no 2 ch space where I'm at. I am stumped. I don't know if they mean to start on a different area of the top or stay where I'm at. It does not say to "finish off" so I assume I am still working on the same rows.
