I have been working on this project to make as a birthday present. Finally got all the parts made (which was complicated enough) but now I am to stitching it all together and I am at a loss...Anybody here finish this or could explain how to? I need this done by the weekend as her birthday is May 13th..Monday. Thanks.

heres a great you tube vid on the sctog https://www.google.com/search?q=EI7Nq3LUNc0&rlz=1C1FDUM_enUS472US472&aq=f&oq=EI7Nq3LUNc0&aqs=chrome.0.57.10096350j0&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

Priscilla, I think "ss" means slip-stitch. For others working on this pattern, what does "sc2tog" mean? 2 single crochet in one stitch? Thanks

Sc2tog means when you do 2 single crochets together. I'm not very good at explaining it but there are lots of tutorials on youtube that do. Sorry

"sc2tog" is when you "decrease by turning 2 stitches into 1" - insert hook and YO then insert hook into next stitch and YO then pull through all 3 loops on hook and you will now have 1 stitch where there used to be 2.

Hi, I'm currently about to shape the arm hole on the back but I'm not sure what 'Ss' means. could you tell me what it stands for? Thank you

I have been trying this pattern a couple of times and am having no luck. When doing beginning chain of 64 chs and then doing row 2 which calls for sc, miss next chain I do not come out with the amount of sts which is 63 sts per pattern. I am a experienced crocheter but so far I have not been able to work this out. Please help.

For the first two persons who are struggling with this pattern. Please contact me if you are still working on this project. I can help you get through this! shedanceswithhorses@hotmail.com I have over 30 years experience and would love to help you finish your projects!

Would you be able to help me with the finishing of this project? Thanks.

I am so very confused by the shaping the armholes part. After the ss chain row don't you end up with 56 stitches +2 that you leave unworked? If that is the case, then, when you do the sc2tog don't you end up with 28 stitches? Then, if you repeat on the next row you would have 14 stitches. And what about the work a further 23 rows? Do you do sc or chains or sc2tog or what? I really don't understand. It might be my lack of experience but I feel like the directions are unclear.

i am so confused on the last part can anyone help i am nearly finished i have a sleeve to do but the finishing part confuses me alot and it is starting to frustrate me as i dont understand HELP PLEASE

do you have any crocheted area rug, thank, and the tank cover, for bathroom,
