About Me

My photo
I am 44. I am married to the love of my life. Together we have two beautiful young adults who bring me joy everyday. In 2015 we added another beautiful young adult to our house, our niece, and she has been a great joy! Secretly, I'm counting the years till grandbabies start coming; they just need to find their forever loves first.

This is beautiful. I don't know if I will get to it this year, but this is on my list to complete. Your stuff is beautiful.

Thank you for your generous sharing of your talent.

Hi I love this it is super cute. I consider myself an advanced crocheter although I tried working on the hat about 8 times and could not get the number of stitches to come out right. This is worked in rounds correct? I guess my question is starting on row 3 or round 3 (sc in 1, 2sc)twice, sc in last (7) inside the parenthesis means do all that in one stitch? (sc in 1, 2 sc) then do that one more time in next stitch and still have 7 open stitches left for 7 sc's? When I do that I don't have the (7) (10) and (13) open stitches left. I only made it to row 9 and my numbers were really off. I worked on the bodice and it came out great. Is there anything you can do to help me through this. Thanks for sharing your work is beautiful. P.S. we are the same age as well, I like it when I come across people that are my age and crochet, I've been doing it off and on since I was 12.

Hi Roadrunner. No you shouldn't do all those stitches in one stitch. You put 1sc in one stitch and then 2sc in the next. That will make a total of 3 sc over two spaces. You should do that a total of 2 times, then put one sc in the last open space on that row. That will give you a total of 7 sc for that row.

Subsequently the rows that follow will use that same basic pattern idea. increasing to 10sc and 13 sc. Let me know if you need any further info.

I'm having trouble with the bodice, Do I count the 30 stiches from the Left Front ending stich or from the opposite way of the first stitch?

Biz said...

Hi Destanie,

I'm not sure where you are at in the pattern, because the only place that you skip 30 stitches in the bodice is when you are working the Right Back, which is after the Left Back. If you are working the Right Back, then yes, you count off of the last stitch from the Left Back, always working to the "Left" in crochet (unless you are a left handed crocheter, then you work to the right). Hope this helps.

I first just wanted to let you know that this is absolutely adorable. However, I am so confused. I am working the bodice, and have finished the left back. This next instruction is to skip 30and reattach in next sc with sl st. It then says to sc in same sp and in the next 9 sc. I only have 9sps including the sl st sp. I had 50 scs in each round of the bodice (I count as I go). So where did I go wrong. I tried to attach in the 30th st instead of the 31st. Then worked the right back. Next. To work front it says to sk 9 from left back, reattach with sl st, work sc in same sp and in next 15 scs (16 scs). However when this is done, I am left with an uneven amont of stitches in between left back and front and right back and front. What am I missing here? Please help. I took out everything up to the last round of the the bodice, so that I could start completely over.

Thank you.

Biz said...

Hi Twizzles.
Sorry for the confusion. The skip space to work the FRONT section should only be 7 spaces for the armholes. The front section will still be worked over a total of 16sc. Just reduce the armhole space to 7 open sc between front and back. Thanks for bringing that to my attention!

Julie Nelson said...

Is is worsted weight yarn? Regular 4ply? Thanks and thanks for the patterns. My daughter has 2 of the knock off American Girl Dolls....so these clothese will look adorable on them...thanks again

Biz said...

Hi Julie. Yes, this is worsted weight yarn. I used Caron Simply Soft because it is a little more malleable than say Red Heart. Glad you like the patterns! :-)
