  2. I can tell you that I did buy the pattern book on Annie's Attic and it is very very confusing with the way it is explained. I had to go to You Tube and find a left handed version and of course did, I watched it very closely and next thing you know I was actually working the stitch pattern with no trouble. Once you get the hang of it, it's just a matter of repeating the 2 rows. I will warn everyone tho, so far everything I have found is you either work it in a triangle shape or a square/rectangle so far I have not found instructions to increase/decrease like we are use to in almost all other patterns. Once you get the hang of it, it's a very fun stitch that is hard to put down. I am working on an "idea" right now.
  3. Very cute, thnx, will have to see abt making this for my granddaughter, I gave her one of these babies and she is always wanting grandma to make baby clothes for her.
  4. Thank you everyone for the wonderful compliments. Have a long ways to go to make it a full afghan for my daughter but I think it will be so worth it in the end. I was worried that the center was going to pucker due to the quick increase but it didn't. Was really impressed. The best part abt it is that once you get pattern established, you can toss aside the pattern and sit back, relax, watch tv and mindlessly crochet.
  5. Thank you Melinda for allowing me to test for you. This is a very easy pattern with nice results. My daughter fell in love the colors I am using and has already claimed it for her new apt when it is done. I am planning on entering this into our Local Fair in Aug. Thanks again for letting me test, it was nice to do some testing again.
  6. Thanks Mary for the suggestion, I just searched out Annies and did find they do have a correction but it's for after the 1st 4 rows of the cross stitch pattern. I just emailed them with what info I already have and sent them pics of my test piece. Now just waiting to hear back from them to see what they say. I know it just has to be a simple reason of why I am just not getting it to work.
  7. Thanks Jennifer for the break down. That's how I worked it for the 1st 4 rows. I have even wrote support thru e-patterns and got a reply with the same layout you have. I sat and redid the pattern in a test piece with lighter yarn (pink) I am doing the pattern in black so thought maybe I was some how skipping some stitches. Even in the test piece the Cross Stitch Pattern is NOT lining up like it should be and Support assures me it will line up. I did take pics and send them pics. I've had no trouble with the rest of the pattern for the front and back sections and even with the arm hole shaping all worked out fine and lined up perfectly. I may just set it aside for a few days and retry to see what happens after clearing the mind. Thanks again
  8. I purchased this pattern a while back and have worked on it off and on. http://www.e-patternscentral.com/detail.html?prod_id=5703&cat_id=&criteria=winter+white+coat I have ran into trouble when working the sleeves. Stitches/Pattern Note Pattern Note: Ch 3 at beginning of row or round counts as first double crochet unless otherwise stated Special Stitch:Cross-stitch (cross-st): Sk next st, dc in each of next 3 sts, working over the last 3 dc just worked, dc in last sk st. Cross-Stitch Pattern: Row 1 (RS): Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across, turn. Row 2: Ch 3 (see Pattern Note), cross-st (see Special Stitch) across, ending with dc in last st, turn. Row 3: Ch 1, sc in each st across, turn. Rep rows 2 and 3 for pattern. The Row that is giving me fits: Mind you the previous row ended with 38 sc and was no trouble. Next rows: Work in Cross-Stitch Pattern and at the same time work 2 dc in first st and 2 dc in last st on dc rows and 2 sc in first st and 2 sc in last st on sc rows, every row 0[0,2,4,10] times, every other row 13[14, 16, 14, 10] times then every 4th row 3[2, 0, 0, 0] times. (70[70, 74, 74, 78] sts at end of last row) I have started by using rows 1, 2 and 3 then repeating rows 2 and 3, it's not working out, so I dropped row 1 and just did rows 2 and 3 still not working out. I did the 1st and last stitch with a total of 2 respective stitches, it doesn't come out. I have tried with the stitches in the instructions and adding the 2 stitches and it seems to be the only way I can get the cross stitch pattern to line up, the problem then is I have too many stitches then in the count. My brain is boggled over this and for some reason I can't get it to work out correctly. I have put the size I am working on in red if that helps. I don't like patterns like this that include so many rows in one sections plus tells you to work this pattern. I have worked on this since last night to no avail. I know it's probably real simple and obvious but it's kicking my hook to pieces, LOL. Thanks so much for any simplified help!!
