How many sts did you have at the end of row 18? More than likely you missed some YOs on row 17 because the stitch number should stay the same.

Your stitch count is off by 32sts which may be due to missing yarn overs in several rows. Take a look at the zigzag pattern that you've knit and see if it looks even and you can see the little holes that form the pattern along with the lines of ssk's and k2togs. They should progress evenly to a series of points, like the picture. I agre with Sue, you shouldn't be losing sts. The stitch count should be the same for all the rows.

Hi,

At the end of 17th row & 18th Row my total stitches were 113.. On the 19th stitch it says pass 2nd,3rd,4th and 5th st over last stitch and there are no yo in row 19th thus on row 19 I lost 4sts for every repeat and I made total 8 repeats, thus 14sts are converted to 10sts.

The pattern looks good for me.. Should i have more than 113sts on row 18?
Thanks
Regards

Good, then the problem is just with the repeat in row 19:
* p3, (k1, p1, k1, p1, k1) in next stitch, then pass the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th sts over last st made; p3, k3, rep from *
You should increase 4sts at the underlined part and then when you pass the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th sts over, you're immediately decreasing those same 4sts and the st count will stay the same. This video shows the increase stitch. Ignore the end of the video which uses the increases to make a bobble. You're going to pass the increases sts over the first stitch.
Glad that the pattern is looking good.

"(k1, p1, k1, p1, k1) in next stitch, then pass the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th sts over last st made; p3, k3, rep from *"

These are all done on the same stitch not consecutive stitches. Kpkpk into 1 stitch, then on the right needle, lift the 2nd st from the end over the st on the end, then the 3rd one, the 4th and the 5th st. You increased 4 sts with the kpkpk, but decrease 4 by lifting the extra ones over a single stitch.

back to knitting
Hi all thanks for your help but after all that discussion on this pattern I finished the skirt and such a shame had to stop coz now we had our baby home and it was tough to do anything apart from looking after her schedule.Now she is 20 months and am back to knitting!!!!! Yehhh!!!

I am so thrilled and happy!!!!!!

So now I am going to finish all my old unfinished projects 1st.

I Need Your Help Again. Now I need to do this for a bigger size like 3t instead of 12 months can you help me adjust the stitches since this pattern was for 0-6 months..
I am at the beginning of bodice and with 70 stitches..
How much should be the armhole and how much to split in the back..


Below are the body measurements
Inches
Chest. 23
Arms eye. 10
Around arm 6 5/8
Knee length 22 1/4
Neck base. 10 3/4
Shoulder 2 7/8 (base of neck to armeyes point on the shoulder)

Regards
Vvs

Congrats vvs on the new baby and now toddler! Good to see you back.
I see that you're getting 5sts/inch so you can figure out the number of sts for the chest by multiplying the measurement in inches times 5. If you want the dress to measure about 24 inches at the chest, then cast on 120sts.
You'll have to round that number up or down depending on the pattern repeat so consider that as well.
Check your row gauge and use that number to estimate how long you need the bodice to be before the armholes and also how long the arm openings should be.
I think this may be a link to the pattern. The old link seems to have lapsed.

pattern
Hi

I got those calculations but am not sure howmuch do I need to bind off after working the slip stitch pattern for 6 rows? Or do I add some more rows and then bind off..

The entire bodies section is complicated..

Below is the pattern....
Slip Stitch Pattern:
Row 1: k1, * k2, sl 1, k1, rep from *; end k2.
Row 2: p2, * p1, sl 1, p2, rep from *; end p1.
Row 3: rep row 1.
Row 4: rep row 2.
Rows 5 and 6: knit.
Row 7: k1, * sl 1, k3, rep from *; end sl 1, k1.
Row 8: p1, sl 1, * p3, sl 1, rep from *; end p1.
Row 9: rep row 7.
Row 10: rep row 8.
Rows 11 and 12: knit

Work in stockinette stitch until piece measures 18 inches or desired length.
Decrease for Bodice: Knit 9, k2 tog across to last 8 sts, k8. (54 sts).
Knit 3 rows.
Work Eyelet Row: (k1, k2 tog) across row; end yo, k1 (55 sts).
Knit 3 rows.

Bodice:
Begin Slip Stitch Pattern. Work 6 rows. Shape Armholes: Keeping in pattern, bind off 4 sts at beg of next 2 rows, then dec 1 st each side of next 3 right side rows. When Bodice measures 3 inches from eyelet, bind off center 11 sts. Working each side separately, dec 1 st at neck edge every other row, 3 times. (12 sts) Work even until piece measures 4 inches from eyelet. Bind of rem 12 sts.

Back:
Work same as Front to the Bodice. Split Back for button/buttonhole bands: Work across 25 sts in Slip Stitch pattern, then k5 for buttonhole band (these 5 sts will be knit on every row). Leave remaining unworked sts on needle to be worked later. Continue shaping same as for Front, omitting neck shaping, and binding off when back bodice measure 4 inches from eyelet.
For other side, cast on 5 sts (these are the button band, and are knitted on every row), then work Slip Stitch pattern across remaining 25 sts. Shape same as other side, reversing shaping.
Sew shoulder seams.

Sleeves:(are worked from the top down)
Pick up 48 sts along one armhole edge. Turn.
Purl across 20 sts, place marker (pm), purl into front and back of next 8 sts, pm. Turn.
Working in stockinette stitch, work to marker, remove marker (rm), work one more st, pm.
Continue is this manner, working one more st at the end of every row, until 6 sts rem unworked at each side.
On next two rows, work 2 extra sts.
On last 2 rows, work last 4 sts at each end.
Work 2 rows even.
K2 tog across next row. (28 sts)
Work eyelet row: (k1, yo, k2 tog) across row, ending with k1.
Knit next row.
Bind off.
Repeat along other armhole edge for other sleeve.
Sew side and sleeve seams.
Neckband:
Pick up 53 sts along neck edge.
Knit 1 row.
Eyelet Row: (k1, yo, k2 tog) across row.
Knit 1 row.
Bind off.

Sew bottom of button band under buttonhole band, and sew buttons on to button band. Buttonholes are not necessary, since the buttons are small enough to go through the garter st band.
