Knitting Toys by Fiona

Small rabbit pink dress back side.
Book by Fione called Knitting toys.
The pattern is very long. Is anyone familar with it. My is the instructions after the cast off of back of dress.
It states to rejoin yarn to remaining stitches. I must have not done it right as i have no remaining stitches.
Please let me know who can guide me.
Thank you.

I’m not familiar with it, no, but do you have any stitches on hold on a thread or stitch holder? Usually it’s something on hold that yarn is rejoined to. Maybe the front of the dress?

I’m sure someone will be able to help out if this isn’t the solution .

Maybe the small rabbit within this pattern:

This shows the back of a dress with a keyhole. If this is similar to your pattern it could be that you only knit across half the back sts, bind off and then work the second half.
If it will help you can post a few rows of the back directions. Please don’t post a large portion of the pattern due to designer copyright.

Thank you very much. I am going to start over as I may have not set stitches aside on a separate needle




Here are some snipets of pattern:

22 stitches on needle.

K11, turn
K2,p to end
K11, turn
K2, p to end
K11, turn
K2, p to last 3 stitches, k3
Repeat last 2 rows 3 more times
K 4 rows
Cast off
With RS facing, rejoin yarn to rem stitches


Here is where I need help

I did the cast off but do not have any stitches remaining.

What am I missing?

Thank you

Well the directions could be more explicit. The idea is that you knit 11 out of the 22sts on the needle then turn as you would at the end of a row. Leave the 11sts sitting unworked on the left hand needle or put them on a holder. You’ll get to them later.
After the turn k2 and purl 9 over the 11sts that you just knit.
From here on to the bind off you’ll only work on the same 11sts. So k11, turn as you would at the end of the row and continue with the directions.

Thank you very much for your detailed email. You have helped me understand the instructions.

I strongly agree with you as far as the way the instructions are given in this pattern. Very frustrating.

Following your instructions I have completed this section.

Next half of dress


P to last sts, k2

Do I interpret this as pearl to last 2 stitches then k2?


Yes, that’s correct. This will give you a nice garter stitch border at the neck/back opening.

Thank you so much for answering so quickly. You have been so helpful. I appreciate it.
