Hi! I’ve started working on a cap sleeve pullover. It’s crocheted from the top down in one piece, in the round. The first part is a basic yoke that forms the cap sleeve, with the rounds starting at the end of the yoke. Here is where I’m running into trouble:
Rnd 1: Dc in first 19 sts, ch 13 for underarm, sk next 25 sts for cap sleeve, dc in next 38 sts, ch 13 for underarm, sk next 25 sts for cap sleeve, dc in last 19 sts. Join this and all rnds with a sl st in 3rd ch of ch-3.
Rnd 2: Ch 3, dc in first 6 sts, [yo, insert hook (from front to back) around post of st of rnd below, yo draw up a lp, (yo, draw through 2 lps on hook) twice – front raised dc made (frdc), yo, insert hook (from back to front around post of st of rnd below, yo, draw up a lp, (yo, draw through 2 lps on hook) twice – back raise dc made (brdc), frdc around next 4 sts, brdc around next st, frdc around next st], dc in next 11 sts, frdc around next 2 sts, dc in next 12 sts, frdc around next 2 sts, brdc around next 2 sts, *frdc around next 4 sts, brdc around next 2 sts, rep from * across 3 times, frdc around next 2 sts, dc in next 12 sts, frdc around next 2 sts, dc in next 11 sts. Join.
The first round of the body fits perfectly onto the previous row (the last row of the yoke). However, I’ve tried making round 2 a few times, and every time, I’ve ended up in a situation where I must frdc or brdc into the chain from the previous round, which does not make any sense to me. I’ve also added the stitches in each row, and round 2 seems to end up with 94 stitches compared to round 1’s 102, even though I don’t think there are any decreases.
Did I miss something, or does there seem to be some missing/incorrect info in this pattern (I have found a few minor typos so far)? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
