i am having trouble 'seeing' the instructions in my head. has anyone posted pictures of the 'Baby Pea Pod Snuggly' in progress? it would certainly help me understand what i am suppose to do, before i do it wrong. i am ready for the 'Back' under the 'Divide for Armholes' section, and since i have never made anything 'fitted' before, i am having difficulties understanding what i am doing.

I had to undo this a few times, before I decided to chain 95, so that my row ended up being 91 stitches - big mistake in the directions to begin with. Now, I've done the 35 rows and don't understand the rest - what does it mean to remove the hook and slip st to the stitch holder - what stitch holder (where is it) and how do you slip st w/o a hook? I'm taking it to a friend to help me out.

Help please! I was doing well until I got to the "shape neck & shoulders" section. I hate to sound stupid (I've crocheted for years) but after the "ch 9", where are the next 39 to dc in? I'm stumped. Any help is appreciated!

it would be nice if the pattern would print

Is there an error in Row 1? Shouldn't the first DC be in the 2nd chain from the hook? Otherwise if you chain 91 and make the first DC in the 4th chain from the hook, how do you end up with 90 stitches?

I would call it "bundle snuggler"

I think this should be called "Baby Snuggie" or "Baby Snuggler"
