Finished Sizes

Postby wiLDaBoUtCoLoR » Sun Oct 17, 2010 3:21 pm

I purchased the Paton's Grace yarn that this pattern calls for, but the weight is a 3 (sport). Would this make a difference?
I'm using the size G/6 (4.25mm) hook following the dress pattern instructions for the 6 months. My crocheting is normal ( I think) and my measurements are the 9 mo. size across the chest.
Let me ask you this.... When on a baby, the length of the dress, does it just go over the diaper or closer to the knees? I don't have the child to measure, she's not born yet! :) Making this early :wink:
Thanks,

Paton's Grace should work just fine. There were a few testers who made this dress using it. Just be sure to check your gauge. The length should reach the baby's knees or even a little bit lower. Let us know if you have any other problems with the dress.

Congrats on the new arrival, she will look beautiful in this dress! :D

Thank you and also for your quick reply to my questions on this adorable dress pattern :')
I guess my stitching is a little off. I should have check the gauge and used an 'F' crochet hook instead. But it's okay, I won't be ripping out. She will just have more than 1 of these dresses to wear as she grows. Still working on this dress length, I'd much rather it end shorter. I'd like the dress to end just a bit past the baby's bottom. I will also be making a diaper cover with ruffles to match.
I also purchased the 'Garden Fairy' pattern to make for her. These dresses are the cutest, most precious patterns and I thank the creators.
Yes, Madison will be a little princess in these adorable dresses and we will have lovely memories forever in our photos.
Thank you again Carolyn. If I have any more questions on my next project, I'll be sure to ask.
Gonna be Great Grandma,
Ellen

Re: Row 8

Postby peachesncream » Sun May 22, 2011 11:43 am

Good Morning I am having trouble with Row 8 for the portion of the skirt on the pattern of "Garden fairy. Would you please be able to help me, since I understand you have made this dress before. On row 8 for skirt, are you suppose to make 1dc-shell then make one loop then make 2nd dc-shell and then trp loop in last loop, skip the trp loop from prior row and then restart 1dc-shell?
I'm a bit confused with this row. Should there only be 20 sets of dc-shells or 20dc-shells in the whole row. Help.
Thank You

Hello dear!

I am copying and pasting the instructions below for reference:
Rnd 7: Sl st in first ch-1 sp of first tr-shell, ch 1, loop in same sp, (loop in next ch-1 sp of same tr-shell) twice, ch 3, sk next ch-3 sp, sk next loop, trp-loop in next loop, ch 3, sk next loop, sk next ch-3 sp, *loop in first ch-1 sp of next tr-shell, (loop in next ch-1 sp of same tr-shell) twice, ch 3, sk next ch-3 sp, sk next loop, trp-loop in next loop, ch 3, sk next loop, sk next ch-3 sp. Rep from * around; join with sl st to first sc of first loop. || 27, 30, 30, 30, 33 loops || 9, 10, 10, 10, 11 trp-loops || 18, 20, 20, 20, 22 ch-3 sps ||

Rnd 8: Sl st in first loop, (ch 3, 4 dc) in same loop (beg-dc-shell completed), loop in next loop, (5 dc in next loop) (dc-shell completed), sk next ch-3 sp, sk next loop, trp-loop in next loop, sk next loop, sk next ch-3 sp, *dc-shell in next loop, loop in next loop, dc-shell in next loop, sk next ch-3 sp, sk next loop, trp-loop in next loop, sk next loop, sk next ch-3 sp. Rep from * around; join with sl st to top of ch-3.
|| 9, 10, 10, 10, 11 loops || 9, 10, 10, 10, 11 trp-loops || 18, 20, 20, 20, 22 dc-shells ||


Let me see if I can give you a hand with this.

On Rnd 7, you should have 3 loops, then a ch-3 sp, then a trp-loop, and then a ch-3 sp all the way around, right?

So on Rnd 8, we have 3 loops then a ch-3 sp to begin with. So in the first loop, you make a beg-dc-shell. In the second loop you make a loop, in the 3rd loop you make a dc-shell. Then we are going to skip that ch-3 sp. Next you work in the trp-loop. In the next trp-loop, you will only be working in the center loop leaving the first and last loop of the trp-loop unworked. So you skip the first loop, then work a trp-loop in the n ext loop (which is the center loop of the trp-loop) , then you skip the last loop. You then skip the next ch-3 sp. Then you begin and repeat all of what you just did again. Let me know if this helps and makes sense?
