I am almost finished with this awesome pattern, but I am completly stuck at the very last step. I need to crochet the elastic for the waist. i know the basics of crocheting, so thats not the problem. my problem is that i really don’t understand some of the instructions. ok, here are the instructions:
Attach the yarn at the waist seam. With a safety pin, attach the end of the elastic to the instide of the waistband, a little to the right of where you attached the yarn, now your going to crochet around the waist encasing the elastic as you go, with the WS facing you hold the elastic pretty close to the top of the waist band.
Withe your crochet hook, pu a p loop a bit below the elastic then pu a st above the elastic in the top row ( elastic is behind hook). youve now got 2 st on the hook. pull a loop through both chain 1st d now keep going around the waist crocheting into every st and corresponding p loop rep the following: 1 pu a p loop below the elastic. 2 pu a st above the elastic 3 pull a loop through these 2 sts. (2 sts on hook) 4 pull a loop through both sts.
i understand the abbreviations. i’m having problem with the steps, i don’t think i’m putting it together like i need to in my head. its probably cause i want to finish this really bad! can someone explain to me these steps, the p loop i think is what has be all confussed. thanks to all that help me! i really do appreciate it!
