    Scallop edging for matinee coat

    So where would I make my first DC at. Would it be in the last neck edge space?

    Scallop edging for matinee coat

    The website to the pattern is www.rockthecradlepatterns.com
  6. Pattern reads for Edging on neck: With WS facing, rejoin yarn to neck edge with 1 ch, work 1 dc in each st round neck,turn Next row: (RS) 1 ch, 1 dc in first st, 1 dc in each of next 34 sts, miss 1 st, 1 dc in each st to end, turn Next row: 4 ch, miss first 2 sts, *1 tr in next st, 1 ch, miss next st; rep from * to last st, 1 tr in last st. Now work scallops as for Sleeve down right front edge to beg of Skirt, work scallops as before down edge of Skirt, working into spaces between rows, work in skirt patt along lower edge of Skirt, work scallops as before up edge of Skirt, and scallops as before up to neck, then work scallops along neck edge. Fasten off. Make scallops thus: 1 ch, 1 dc in first ch sp, *5 tr in next ch sp, 1 dc in next ch sp; rep from * to end. Fasten off. My question is after working the last row for the neck edge am I supposed to fasten off there or do I begin from the last stitch in the last row? Pattern does not say

    Matinee coat help

    Not quite sure I understand this join. How do you pull up a loop and pull the tail through. Wouldn't this pull the join out? Or do you yarn over. Do you fold the new yarn in half over the hook

    Pattern says with WS facing, rejoin yarn to neck edge with 1 ch.. Does this mean to rejoin yarn and then chain 1?

    Paton's Matinee Coat C4621 help

    How do you know that there is an increase when the pattern says 1 tr in first st---I took it that this meant 1 triple crochet in first stitch--it doesn't say to increase, however, it does make sense.

    Paton's Matinee Coat C4621 help

    Thank you for the reply. I understand what you are saying. However, the pattern says that there will be 42 stitches for the back and I can only get 40. Am I looking at this wrong?

    Paton's Matinee Coat C4621 help

    I am trying to crochet a matinee sweater and am having trouble with the stitch count on the pattern. The pattern is Paton's C4621 and I have finished up to Row 7 with 128 sts. I am right up to here but where it says to divide for back thus is where I am having the problem, it says: with WS facing miss 24 sts, rejoin yarn in next st, 3 ch, 1 tr in first st, 1 tr in each of next 38 sts, 2 tr in next st, turn (42 sts)--I have done this but when I get to the next section Cont for Left Front thus: With WS facing, miss 24 st rejoin yarn in next st, 3 ch , 1 tr in first st, 1 tr in each st to end, turn (21 sts)--I do not have enough stitches left to make 21 sts---Where am I supposed to start counting the 24 sts for the back-- If anyone has made this coat could you please help or anyone else that could give me some insight into this.
