ok, so I can get started then?

Do you think LT would work for this? I have two skeins of colorway and one of trim. Would that be enough?

Do you have a full skein trim? I think it would be enough if you do short sleeves. I think LT works fine Smile

I'll be casting on tonight. I just need to wind my yarn. I'm planning to use a semi-solid for the whole thing, will that work?

where do you want questions and such?

I would make sure to add on the cast on number to use the size 7 needles Smile

Also when it says:

All odd rows until waistband: knit do we just need to follow the rows for the front only?? And should it be knit or purl on the backside??

This is a great place for questions. I will add that in on the size 7 needles. Yes, you are only following the row directions for the front. I am trying to find a way to word that so it makes more sense. And its knit only on the back, you are working the arms and the back in stockinette and the front in the stitch pattern, hth!

Wow, I totally messed that up, that's what happens when you work on patterns at 12:30 in the morning. I edited to have it say to work in the round, and hopefully clarified the section you were asking about before. LMK if you have any other questions, and I'll try to get a chance to proofread it more thoroughly.

I'm assuming that the round marker is at the middle of the back - is that right?

Row 6 Question

Post  purseaddict on Sat Jul 31, 2010 2:45 pm

I am doing 12/24m size.

On row 6, an even row, I am supposed to KFAB one each side of the stitch markers. The instructions for the bodice portion of Row 6 start with KFAB. Am I doing it for the stitch marker and then again? Adding at total of 3 stiches? Thanks!

You will add 8 stitches each even numbered round - kfab before and after each marker except for the round marker.

The extra instructions for the front section include the kfab as above so you will only increase 2 stitches in that section same as in all the others

I'm nearly finished the 4/5 bodice.

There is an error towards the end of the bodice instructions though - there is no row 29. I've worked what is written for row 30 as row 29 and then carried on with the rest as I think it should be from previous rows - but the numbers for rows 31-34 do not work out with the extra increase from row 30.

I've also added a few extra p2 at the ends of some of the rows Embarassed as there were big long knit sections that didn't look right to me. That is probably deliberate but it would have bugged me forever Laughing

OK I am having trouble getting the correct stitch count with the preemie size..ugh! i have ripped it out twice! What is wrong with me?
Ok when you start row 5, are those directions for the whole front? My round marker is right in the middle of the front?! Is it not supposed to be? How many sts should I have in the front when I begin row 5????

The round marker is in the middle of the back. The front is the section with the most stitches.

You start with 18 and would have 22sts before beginning row 5

Thank you for explaining, that is what I meant. Is there a way I could word the pattern differently so that will make sense?

I fixed the row error, now there are only 32 rows Wink

Also, what do you mean by the extra p2? Can you show me a pic?

Glad you figured it out Smile LMK if it isn't working out

I'm going to add to the pattern that the marker is in the middle of the back to make it more clear.

I should have waistband instructions up by tomorrow night Smile
