This is a really cute top and I can't wait to finish it, however, I am having the difficulty as Laura. I wonder if Rows 3-6 should have said repeat rows 1 and 2 instead of just row 2. Are both sides supposed to be the same? I would think so. I hope you were able to figure it out Laura, or got some help with it. It can be very frustrating when the pattern doesn't seem to be quite right.

Instructions for left and right fronts are for neckline shaping.

I read the instructions and it does not look like it should. Worked bottom up should have 17 DC and 2 filet stitches. When I did it, wholes are scattered.Someone PLEASE help!!!

I'd really love it if you would respond to this question: how the hek do the left and right front join?

There's a starting 124 ch on the front and same on the back, that means 248 in total, how do I put 190 dc round the bottom? Should I just skip 58 ch in random? Help please.

When I first read the directions they didn't seem to match up with the picture, then I realized we were starting at the bottom and working UP. seems a logical thing afterward, but I think it should be included in directions. ( for us simple ones, lol ) The pattern is beautiful and I'd like to try it in a cotton yarn instead of 2 strands of the light weight Aunt Lydia's. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Would also love to see a photo of a finished garment made by one of Us.

Could you please give the finished bust measurements for the various sizes? A previous post shows size 12/14 (42-44) but I sure don't see that in the insturctions. Did I just miss it? Thanks so much for your help.

Ladies, if you look at the pattern, directions are provided for sizes M-5X. Just follow the directions under your size. If you fall between, then choose the larger size.

I would love to have this pattern sized as a tunic for the fuller figure (1X-5x). The vertical lines would be so figure flattering, especially if they flaired around the belly and hips. I would use this pattern in a minute if it was in my size.

the pattern indicates:
"Size: 12/14 (42/44)"
Is there an adjustment for BETWEEN these sizes??
