    Hi Shweta 🙂
    Slip stitching around the pages are optional. You can also work a single crochet border all around the pages too.

  2. Hi Joanita. Thanks for this wonderful pattern. I’m glad I finally found the opportunity to start my dollhouse playbook. I have a small doubt. From the pictures it looks like you have slipped stitch around the entire page, but somehow I couldn’t find this mentioned anywhere.

    Hi Charissa 🙂
    You are absolutely correct! I will fix that typo. Thank you for letting me know.

  4. Hi I love your work and I am working on 2 of these at the same time. 🙂 I do have a question… On the main house it says to crochet the one side up to row 14 then FO then atach yarn to otherside and repeat row 2. Im assuming it is supossed to be row 2 through 14 again. Am I correct because i could not find any other part to make the other side of the house. Thank you
