I've crocheted the front and crotch and fastened off. Then crocheted the back. Now I have the one piece which consists of the front, crotch, and back. Now am to the part of the pattern that reads:
"Joining Round: (right side) Work in dc across back, work 1 dc in each dc along last row of front, join with a slip stitch in top of first ch-3. There are 120 sts around. Ch 3, turn. Continue to work even in this manner, joining and turning at the end of each round until 8", from first sc row of crotch. Ch 1."
I think I've halfway figured it out, but the leg openings seem too big doing it the way I think. However, for times sake, I'm trying it and if it doesn't work....well, it won't be the first time something around me has been unraveled! :) Thanks for your input.
