Tips-n-Tricks -Alt reverse single crochet method

Alternative reverse single crochet or Alternative rsc =
it as an alternative to reverse single crochet, which can be difficult to master at times.

Insert hook into stitch as if you were doing a regular single crochet, yarn over and draw through, with the two loops on the hook, rotate the whole hook 360 degrees, yarn over and draw through.

Patti Girls Puppy Shaw

I had some stubborn yarn today LOL
I was trying to make a scarf and nope it just refused so i ripped…
then i tried a shaw nope so i ripped…
ok lets try a different shrug NOPE so i ripped…
About that time patti girl jumped up next to me and snuggled right up under the almost all unraveled mess and looked so cozy it hit me a puppy shaw!

i picked up yarn and started playing with some fancy stitches and after abit more ripping and redoing i had Patti Girls Shaw.
It only took about half a skein of yarn and a few hours to figure out a pattern.
Patti-girl LOVES it too!
I put it on her and she just beamed.
Maria and Daniel came by to check on me and she strutted her stuff showing it off for them. They thought it was adorable on her.
I might make one for ShyGirl too i kinda feel im leaving her out and she stays inside most the time anymore.

I have pattern written down just not decided if i will release it or not.
