Dixie Belle 1 X changing colors...

Postby sandifrommichigan » Sun Apr 27, 2014 10:44 am

I love this little dress, but am stuck, I am at layer 2 row 1 and cannot figure out how to add a new color and where the stitches go for the first row, and I know I will have the same question when I change colors per layer. I need to have this done in 7 days and am stuck.. please HELP I looked at the beautiful pattern, but cannot see where the color starts per layer.

Thank you for your help.

Hi Sandi :) I have copied and pasted the rows below for reference:
Layer 1:
Row 1: (RS) Beg-V-st (see Stitches) in first sc, work loop (see Stitches),*sk next 2 sc, V-st (see Stitches) in next sc, work loop, rep from * across, turn––23 (25, 25, 27, 29) || (29, 31, 33) V-st, 23 (25, 25, 27, 29) || (29, 31, 33) loops.

Rows 2: Ch 2, sl st in ch-2 sp of first V-st, beg-V-st in same sp, *pulling loop toward you and leaving it unworked, V-st in ch-2 sp of next V-st, rep from * across, turn––23 (25, 25, 27, 29) || (29, 31, 33) V-st.


Back in Layer 1 (quoted above) you made loops which consisted of a ch-5. In Row 2 of Layer 1, you left these large loops unworked... Try to go back and look for a series of ch-5 sts. Some of them may have inadvertently been pushed to the right side, but you can easily with your fingers or hooks push them back to the WS to work your Layer 2 (quote below) :)
I hope this helps!

Layer 2:
Row 1: With B and dress upside down with RS facing, lift up Layer 1 to expose loops from Layer 1, attach yarn with sl st to first loop, (sc, ch 5, sc) in same sp (will count as an loop), beg-V-st in same loop, work loop, V-st in next loop, work loop, V-st-loop inc (see Stitches) in next loop, [V-st in next loop, work loop] across until last 3 loops, V-st-loop inc in next loop, [V-st in next loop, work loop] 2 times, turn––25 (27, 27, 29, 31) || (31, 33, 35) V-st, 26 (28, 28, 30, 32) || (32, 34, 36) loops.
