Hello! I absolutely love this pattern and am hoping to make a couple of these for my girls for Christmas. :) I have a question though... on the robe on row 2 it has *2dc, (dc in 2dc,2dc in next dc) 4 times*. I'm having a hard time trying to figure that out. Do you mean that I should 2dc in the sixth stitch then dc in the 7th and 2 dc in the 8th or 9th... and then do that 4 more times?

Thank you so much for posting this pattern . :)

Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful pattern. It is just perfect for my granddaughters' 18" dolls!

I love this pattern so far. I have completed the body and right back, but I had a question about the front. Does it attach right to the row 21 of the body or do you make it on its own and then sew it together?

If it attaches to row 21 of the body then where do you attach it? Thanks for your help with this very pretty pattern!

Theresa said...

Thank you for this pattern. I needed a swimsuit cover-up to make for the granddaughters bathing suits I just made and the jacket on this will be the perfect addition. Thanks again.

Please help, I'm stuck on row 2 of the robe, just can't get it right.
Thanks Jo x

Hi Jo Miah.
Can you email me at bizzycrochet (at) hotmail (dot) com? It is easier to work through pattern problems that way.

Thanks

Row 2 goes like this: ch3, (this counts as a dc), turn, dc in the next 5dc. Then put 2dc in the next dc. Then work the series of stitches in the parentheses a total of 4 times. Then dc in the next 14dc, then repeat the stitches that fall between the asterisks * one more time starting with 2dc in the first stitch and repeating the series of stitches in the parentheses 4 times. Then finish by putting a dc in the last 6dc.

This does not make sense. "Row 29- ch1, turn, sc in 5 sc, leave rem 3 sc undone. (5)"

Where do you line up the remained three single crochets when you stitch the Shoulders and form the arm holes?

Biz said...

They won't line up anywhere. If you look at the picture of the back of the nightgown, the rem three will create the corner where you attach the button.
