Crochet question? - Taking Back the Knit...
... one stitch at a time
Crochet question?
 I know this is a knitting community but as knitting communities are all I belong to I didn't know where else to turn. :)  I'm making a scarf that requires me to crochet a 53" chain stitch.  It doesn't look too hard for me to try to do, even as someone who doesn't crochet, but I don't entirely understand the pattern.  I was hoping someone here might be able to decipher it for me or perhaps point me toward a crochet help community.  Here's the pattern: 

"With crochet hook, make chain about 53 in long.
Slip st in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across.
Fasten off."

What does the middle part mean?  Do I make a 53" chain and then worry about that or is that something I'm doing every second chain?  I'm just not sure what to make of it.  I appreciate any help!  This is the last bit of the scarf and I can't wait to finish it.  Thank you in advance and I hope it's alright that I asked this here, the rest of the pattern involved knitting if that helped any. :)

I think this might mean that you start working in the second loop once you're ready to being crocheting the actual scarf. If you start by working into the first loop, you'll get an uneven edge.. I THINK.

yeah, that's right. Just chain for 53 inches and then when you are done miss the first chain nearest the hook and then slip stitch into all the other chains. Does that make sense? :-S
