Did anyone answer this question yet as i am also confused. I don't understand jumping back and forth between the row to the chart. Can't it be written by row with all instruction written within that row instead of jumping back and forth? Very confusing, am i missing something here?
Thanks for any help

Not sure if you figured this out yet or not.
It is stated in Row 2, in parentheses, of the Bluebells Lace pattern at the top of the page....
Row 2: yo, k3, sk2p (sl1, k2tog, pass sl st over), k3, yo, k1
So you would slip 1, knit 2 together, pass the slipped stitch over.
It only explains it the one time then uses the abbreviation after that.
I hope this helps!

Here is a good link on how to block http://www.craftsy.com/blog/2013/05/blocking-knitting-tutorial/
Basically, you are telling the stitches where to stay put. There will be a gap of time between when you knit the skirt and when you finish the top portion.
During that time, you will basically wash the skirt and then pin it to a foam board to dry in the rectangular position shown in the images below.
Once dry, you then start knitting again. what you see at the top of the image (black string) is the circular needle left in the work to hold the stitches until the work is dry.

This dress turned out very well, but I just realized there are no directions for buttonholes on the upper back. I'll have to find another way to close the opening or rip out. Thanks.
