I am very new to crocheting and picked the blissful top for my first crochet project (I know that i should have probably picked something easier, but I am adventurous...).  So now I have two questions:

1.)  This one is about all the stitches:  Are the things in parenthesis to be repeated into the same stitch or repeated into the next stitch?

2.)  For the dc3tog stitch, the last instruction says to draw yarn through 3 loops on hook.  However, I always have 4 loops on my hook at this point and if I draw the yarn though 3 loops, i wind up with 2 loops on my hook at the end of the stitch.  What am I doing wrong?!?!

Please help!!!

Figured it out!

Well done!  Let us know how you get on.  I have toyed with the idea of making that one myself - can't believe there aren't hundreds of them posted on here!  If I do make it though, I think I will join the back together, and leave out the ribbon tie thingy...

Okay i finished it!  It's not perfect, but i'm pretty happy with it as my first crochet ;o)  The weaving row came out a bit long and i'm not sure why, so I compensated by not doing the plackets that they called for on the sides of the "skirt."  I also added two rows to the skirt because other wise it seemed to be too short.  Plus, i may be jumping the gun here, because I am so new at this, but i think some of the pattern is off (aside for the already posted corrections) on the cups.  So i just followed the instructions and not the stitch numbers and they seemed to come out right.  I used hempathy instead of whatever yarn they called for.  So maybe that accounts for some of the differences ;o)  I also need to line the cups still because it is quite revealing if i didn't have the tank underneath ;op

Let me know what you think.

Fantastic for a first project.  Mine was an ugly scarf.  Congrats! Cheesy

wow! I can't believe that is your first project, it's gorgeous. I'm a beginner and I want to make that one day but I've got some practicing to do first.
Great job Smiley
