  2. Hello I'm kind of a beginner crocheter but this seems pretty simple...I have a question though, in the second row I think or the 3rd where you are crocheting in the front and then the back loop of the sc, you have in your directions to do it 9 times is that correct or should it be 19 times?

  3. I am a beginner crocheter but this seems simple enough, however I do have a question in the 2nd or 3rd row where the directions say crochet in front loop of sc and then back loop it says to do it (9 times) is that correct or should it be (19 times?)

  4. Thank you so much for this pattern. I bought a new set of pots and pans and they all have metal handles. I made a few of these and keep them handy.
