I'm making this super <a href="http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring04/PATTanouk.html" target="_blank">cute little dress</a><br><br>
I have just finished the main bodice and am totally stuck. I really think there is a mistake in the pattern (of course it can't be me!!!).<br>
I am hoping someone out there can help me!!<br><br>
The trouble starts on the shoulders.<br>
What I don't get, is how you could BO on the right front shoulder and then place the stitches on the right back shoulder on a holder. It just doesn't seem right to me. What do you think?<br><br>
Left Front Shoulder (all sizes)<br>
Next row (RS): K until 4 sts remain on left needle, work 4 sts in seed st.<br>
Next row: Work 4 sts in seed st, p to neck.<br>
Next row: K until 4 sts remain on left needle, work 4 sts in seed st.<br>
Next row: Work 4 sts in seed st, p to neck.<br>
Place all sts on holder.<br><br>
Right Front Shoulder (all sizes)<br>
Next row (RS): Work 4 sts in seed st, yo, k2tog. [this yo is the buttonhole so make it pretty loose]<br>
Next row: Work entire row in seed st<br>
Next row: Work entire row in seed st<br>
BO in patt.<br><br>
Left Back Shoulder (all sizes)<br>
Next row (RS): Work 4 sts in seed st, k rem sts.<br>
Next row: Work entire row in seed st<br>
Next row: Work entire row in seed st<br>
BO in patt.<br><br>
Right Back Shoulder (all sizes)<br>
Next row (RS): Work 4 sts in seed st, k rem sts.<br>
Next row: P until 4 sts remain on left needle, work 4 sts in seed st.<br>
Next row: Work 4 sts in seed st, k rem sts.<br>
Next row: P until 4 sts remain on left needle, work 4 sts in seed st.<br>
Place all sts on holder.<br><br>
And then, what does this mean?<br><br>
FINISHING<br>
With RS facing each other, bind the shoulders off together using a 3 needle BO and largest straight needles.<br><br>
If it is too hard to explain over email, i can head to my local yarn shop.<br>
Thanks to anyone who can help!

I do think there is a mistake. SInce it tells you the button goes on the left shoulder, I think the right front and back will be the ones you use the stitch holders for and later finish off with the 3 needle bind off.<br><br>
I'd email Kate via the link at the bottom of the pattern just to make sure though.

There is definitely a mistake in Anouk--I ran into the same problem, where the stitches were held on opposite shoulders. I ended up reversing the shaping on one of the shoulders (I forget which one now) so that the live stitches ended up on the same side so I could do the three-needle bind off.<br><br>
Here's a link to a video for the three-needle bind off--you need to scroll down to get to it, but it's there:<br><br><a href="http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/basic_techniques/bind-off.php" target="_blank">http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting...s/bind-off.php</a><br><br>
Hope this helps!
