ok... so i just did rows 2-9.  now am i supposed to do rows 10-12 and then fasten off and then start on the right front?  these patterns seem way more confusing than knitting. Smiley

Yes, i  believe you do a repitition of rows 2-4, fasten off, and then turn your work upside down and fasten onto the right side of your work to the starting chain.

What pattern are you working on?  The directions that you wrote in could mean just about anything.  I didn't take it as turn it upside down and work on the opposite side of the starting chain - I actually interpretted it as set that piece aside and now work on the right front piece...
It may be all sewn up after you are done - a lot of patterns are done that way - the more advanced garment makers look at it and find a way to joni those pieces so that they dont' have to sew them up later!  I have a friend that is always crocheting clothes and she does that all the time.  I guess some designers look at crocheted clothing as converting a sewing pattern to yarn - make all the pieces, then sew them together..

So I guess what are you working on?  Maybe one of us has that pattern or has made it and we can help.
But that's my take on it - it is done in pieces and then sewn up later.  I know that in the things I design if I want someone to work on the opposite side of the starting chain, that is a specific direction since it isn't the norm.

Ok so what are you snapping for?Huh   I was reading what was in the book.  And it DOES say to work across the opposite side of the FOUNDATION CHAIN.  But I DID get wrong which side you are to start from. 

Row 1 (WS):  With WS facing, working across opposite side of foundation ch, join yarn in first ch on left shoulder, ch4......

I'm not snapping at all - from what was written, and not knowing what pattern this was from I interpretted it a different way. .. which is also why I asked what exactly she was working on.
Wow.  Try and help someone and get your head chewwed up a bit.  There was nothing written about foundation chains in the starting message.

I knew what she was talking about, hence the answer.  I have the pattern.  Duh
