Not sure I understand the instructions
Hi their, I have been working on this dress I got the pattern of ravelry and I have been able to knit it up until this point. I am not sure I understand this part of the instructions so if anyone could help I greatly appreciate it.

On the next round *k54 sts, BO the next 42 sts, repeat from * once more. Remove all markers. Continue working on the front, while letting the back side rest for a while.

Sounds like you're binding off for arm openings. Follow the directions as given, basically, k54 sts (the front), bind off the next 42 sts, k54sts (the back), bind off 42sts. Now you're at the front sts and you'll probably have directions to work back and forth on these 54sts instead of in the round as you have been. The sts for the back can sit unworked on the needle or you can move them to a stitch holder. What is the name of the pattern?

Thank you for your response Salmonmac. The name of the pattern is My little's sisters dress by Tora Froseth.

Thanks for the pattern name. Yes, it's as I posted. The back and front are worked separately and are later joined for the yoke. The style explains what I thought sounded like large armholes but now I see that it's a loose fintting child's dress. Very sweet pattern

Thank you again Salmonmac. I have one last question. When I again join in the round will the dress be longer on one side than the other?

The sides to the underarms will be the same length. Back and front will be the same length. For both the back and front, you work the 2 rows that are given 3 times total (6rows total). Then you join to knit in the round again.

Thank you Salmonmac. I may have additional questions once I get to that part of the instructions. I am currently finishing up the rounds prior to binding off and working in rows again.

Hi again Salmonmac. I am about to complete the last round before binding off but the problem I am having is that pattern says I should have 192 stiches but I won't have them at the end of the round what can I do about this?

Actually I don't see the 192sts. I'm not sure what size you're making but I'd say that if you're close to the correct number of sts, then that's ok. A few sts more or less in this neckline aren't going to make a difference. You may have missed some increases in one ore two rounds. If the length of the dress looks right and the necksize seems reasonable (not to tight or too loose) go ahead and bind off.

"With RS facing, join for knitting in the round, and CO 4
(3, 2, 3, 2) sts under each arm 128 (136, 146, 152,
160) sts. Knit all rounds, increasing 2 sts in each side
every 7th round 9 (10, 10, 13, 14) times 164 (176,
186, 204, 216) sts"

Thank you again Salmonmac. The 192 sts is from still working in the round before binding off.
