Hi. I know a few of you have knit the bernat baby jacquards overall dress. I'm to the part where you pick up the stitches and I just can't get it to work. I know how to pick up and knit, but going all the way across the pieces and around the curves is just not happening for me. I have ripped it out a couple times now and the top is starting to look a bit sloppy.
The specific problems I'm having are, going around the curves, starting to pick up from the left hand side of the piece (this put's me knitting backwards) and everything being so tight and not moving along on the needle. I don't feel like I picked them up that way, I feel like it has to do with the curves.
If you've knit this can you please tell me how you got this part done? I would love any advice. Please save me before I chuck the whole thing out!
