    1. Sorry Lindsey, I edited the pattern and corrected it. It was supposed to be scdc, single crochet decrease. Thanks for the heads up. Hope you make them, Birdie

  3. I'm new to crocheting, and I'm really confused by the instructions for row 8 of the glove part. What does "Sc in next 9 Sc, Sc 2 times in next Sc" mean? Sorry if it's a stupid question.

    1. That means 1 single crochet in each of the next 9 single crochets, and single crochet twice in the next single crochet. (sc) = single crochet. I suggest you visit Lion Brand (link at left) register and go to Learning, they have written and video instructions for all stitches in crochet and knitting for Free. And No question is ever stupid, we all start at the beginning. good luck and thanks for asking, Birdie
