Need Help Understanding Pattern

Recommended Posts

Hello All:

 

I am in the process of making a beautiful doll dress and I am having difficulties understanding rnds 8-27. I worked rows 1-7 with no problem. However, when I got to row 8 I started working in rnds. My understanding is that when you start working in rnds rather you work in one continious rnd or you work the complete rnd and join with a sl st and turn you are usually always told to join. I understand well how to join a rnd. The problem is that once I get to the end of rnd 8 the pattern says:

 

Ch 7, sc picot in last ch sp, ch 4, tr at base of first ch 7 of rnd (ch 4 and tr count as a ch 7), turn

 

The problem is this pattern never says join and I think this is what is confusing me. The norm is when you crochet in rnds you join with a sl st. The word I am stressing over is join, furthermore, it is hard for me to tell if the dress is joned in the front or not. Has anyone every encounter anything like this before. Please help.

Hi:hi and welcome:welcome from the West Coast of Florida

 

Does it say rnd or row. If it says rnd, then join and turn. Sometimes with a round, you still turn.:hook

"tr at base of first ch 7 of rnd"

 

Your join is the tr at the base of the first ch 7 that started the round. At least that is what it tells me..hopefully there WAS a ch 7 at the beginning!

Hi and welcome to the ville:hook. It looks to me that when you do the tr at the base of the first ch 7 of the round, that is the joining. That kind of joining puts you at the top of an "arch" in the stitch pattern.

 

Usually when you have a question about a pattern or stitch, the best place to post is the Crochet Help sections, for maximum exposure:)
