I made the bib which turned out great. The instructions were easy to read. I tried to make the booties but the instructions were difficult to understand. I think diagrams would help. Thanks!

Can anyone tell me where I can find the chart for the days of the week that goes on the bibs please thanks

Hi jennieleehunt, This project was submitted by Lily Sugar n' Cream. The original pattern can be found here - http://bit.ly/1hPmzDQ. It appears that the original does not include a pattern for the days of the week. Hope this helps!

I absolutly love this pattern,cant wait to start them .One question ,how do iI get the chart for the letters? Please can someone help me soon!!Thank you sooooo much

Hello, I am trying to make this bib, can you tell me how many rows are in the body of the bib.. I did it and had alot of rows to make it 61/2 inches long and then when I went to do the neck of it, could not get it to work for me .. Plse help me..

Hi, dlgegg 7706243. I'm sorry to hear you are having trouble reading the directions. Our site is supported by advertisements, which is how we are able to offer all of our great craft projects for free. If you are having trouble viewing the pattern, I might suggest copying and pasting it into a Word document. For those who have specific questions about the pattern, I recommend contacting the pattern designer (specified in the byline). Hope this helps! --Editors of FaveCrafts

RE: EDGING join A with sl st to top left corner of neck EDGE (in green as tho it will explain what you mean). When I clked on the wod edge, I goan advertisement for Ford cars. What is going on? Al;so, overprints of laoding..... and visit us on and long live our dreams and another word I cannot make out make it difficult to read the directions.

I am a pretty good crocheter, but am stuck on this patt. Where is the instep row? I assumed it was one of the short ends, but not sure. Is it at the foundation row or at the top or neither. Doesn't seem like it would be the long edge for the # of stitches instructed (9). Also, on the 2nd to 4th rows, where it says to sc to end of row, does that include the 7 stitches we skipped as well? Which ends/sides make up the center back seam? Once I have these answers, maybe I can figure out the rest. Thanks a bunch.

I need to know about the booties pattern if the first long edge is on the right or left of the bootie and where is the center back seam and if I was suppose to put the instep on the opposite side of the long edge? I know I have alot of questions but I do not know if I am wrong to begin with or not on what I have completed so far. Also, I am left handed so things can get difficult to reverse for me. I do not know where the instep goes on the bootie is that top of the bootie? I know I have alot of questions but I am stuck now. Oh btw, the bibs are fabulous!!! I would love to able to match them up with the booties!

I like this pattern but im a beginner n dont no what (PAT )to last 2 sts mean in the bib pattern

Any time I have a "how to stitch" question I search YOUTUBE.com and they usually have video to see.

I still don't see the size listed anywhere for the booties nor the answer to another who questioned this. Could you please give an approximate size - newborn, toddler, or ages 0-3 mos, 3-6 mos, etc. It would be most helpful. This is a fun set! _

Can you help me to understand how to yoh and draw up a loop in this pattern? Do you have any video to demonstrate how to do it? It will be easier for me to see and understand it. Thank you for your help. Maryse Phan

could you tell me about what size the booties would be?

Good questions and answers for a fun pattern, that a group of crocheters could make for a baby shower.

What a wonderful gift can,t wait to start making these. Thank you for all your lovely free patterns.

PAT is the abbreviation for "pattern". Some crochet designers will say "continue working pattern so many stitches andor rows. you simply continue the same stitches you were doing before until the instructions tell you to work different stitches. For a great list of abbreviations try www.crochetmore.com123basics.htm

I read the instructions above and believe that it wants you to repeat the pattern of stitches just before the word Pat. So I'm guessing that you would put 2 sc in each stitch up until the last two, where you would decrease. Don't know if this is right, but it's worth a shot, and you can always rip it out if it doesn't work out.

Yoh = yarn over hook sc2tog = single crochet two together The pattern is giving instructions on how to reduce the number of stitches. Basically, you start a single crochet in the stitch indicated, then start another one in the next stitch indicated without working the 1st two loops off your hook. This leaves 3 loops on your hook. The final step is pulling a loop through all 3 loops on your hook. So the italicized instructions are on how to do a sc2tog. Whenever the pattern instructs you to do a sc2tog, repeat the italicized instructions. I hope this helps.

Please what does PAT mean in the aqbreviations of this pattern shaping the neck. thanks mary

need a little help with an abreviation in this pattern what does Pat mean in the shaping of the neck?
