What are spaces?
Spaces in crochet are a chain stitch instead of the other stitches. This is much harder to explain then anything else so far. But I will try.
Let's do it and I can guide you along.
Turn and dc 5 times in the chain stitches.
Turn and dc 2 times, then chain 1,
(here's the hard part)
Look at your previous row. Where you were going to dc again, skip that one.
Now dc in the next stitch from the one you skipped. DC again in the next stitch.
You have just created a space.
Listen, we are going to crochet in that space you made. Ready?
Turn, dc in next 2 stitches.
DC in the space.
Instead of sticking the needle through the loops, just poke it in the space and dc like normal.
DC in the next 2 stitches.
That, my friend is how you work in spaces.
