i'll take a picture of it this evening. I dropped the right stitch as I can follow down where it's supposed to go and it should end up at the yarn over but it's just refusing to go. Like its stuck

Maybe you crossed it somehow... I'll take a look at the picture.

Now that that's taken care of....SOMEONE HELP!!! I got to my first drop stitch and for some reason it's refusing to drop down. I've kinda coaxed it down about 3 bars but it's not going any lower than that. Is there something I can do or will it just work down on it's own?

Hmmmm, did it go down to the yo stitch at the edge? If not, then maybe you dropped the wrong stitch.

I think the Lotus Blossom top looks a little like Leelah, with a bit of Tubey for the straps.  Cheesy   Basically the Leelah (lace pattern is different) with straps and not so snug under the bust.

Mine were in between... about 15 inches. It curls up into a scarf and unfolds for a shoulder/upper arm warmer. Make it the width you want.

I've always slipped knitwise if I was knitting the next stitch (or the row) and slipped purlwise if the next stitch was purl.

Could be you just need to gently tug on the yarn on the last purl and first knit stitches and see if that helps.

These are so cute I wish I could knit. I do however crochet.


Wouldn't be that hard to crochet either....

I wish I had found out about the non-stitch marker way before starting.  I don't think you can switch once you've been doing it the other way, can you??

By `non stitch marker way' you mean purling the stitches between the two twisted ones, right? Yes you can switch. Those are the ones that will be dropped, so it doesn't matter if they were originally knitted or purled.

Hi everyone! Thanks so much for the compliments.

Knits_with_animals, I used a single strand and size 4 needles. I wanted the stitches to be tightly knit. Knitpicks lace sounds like a great idea. You might even have to triple strand that.

I'd recommend that, or double strand at least, if you're used to fine yarn and small needles.

Is there a way to make the sleeves longer? I wouldn't mind having them to my elbow...

I guess just repeat the first 2 rows more?

You could do that, or add extra rows and make it as long as you need. Seam up the extra length for the sleeves.
