Forum: Crochet Patterns

I found this pattern through a link on Pinterest that lead to Red Heart’s site and I am stuck on the upper back part of the pattern. Here’s the link:

There weren’t any pictures for me to compare as to what it’s supposed to look like, and this is my first attempt at crocheting a onesie, I’m making it for a friend for Christmas so any help or advice that I can get would be gladly appreciated!

I’m posting this in our weekly brief. Hopefully someone will be able to help.

What is the problem? After you hdc the correct amount of stitches on row 1, you turn and continue with row 2. This is making the sleeve. You will be leaving several stitches unworked. Follow the instructions one step at a time and you should be able to complete. Let us know if this helps.

It is turning out like this and I just don’t think that it’s supposed to do it. That’s what I’m comprehending and I just need help here.

It doesn’t look like you are working in the “ch 8” as instructed. After chaining 8, hdc in third chain from hook, continuing onto the rest of the stitches. Are you turning after each row? If you are turning, then the sleeve should start forming.
Row 2 (sleeve shaping – wrong side): Ch 8
(9, 10) for sleeve base ch, hdc in 3rd ch from
hook (2 skipped ch count as first hdc) and
in next 5 (6, 7) ch, hdc in next 38 (44, 48)
sts for upper back, turn; leave remaining sts
unworked for right front—45 (52, 57) hdc.
Row 3 (sleeve shaping – right side): Ch
8 (9, 10) for sleeve base ch, hdc in 3rd ch
from hook (2 skipped ch count as first hdc)
and in next 5 (6, 7) ch, hdc in each st across,
turn—52 (60, 66) hdc.
Rows 4-7: Repeat Row 3 four more
times—80 (92, 102) hdc.
Work rows of hdc until Upper Back
measures 5 (6½, 7½)” (12.5 (16.5, 19) cm)
from dividing row, end with a wrong sid
