How to read the patterns? No two crocheters work alike. The pattern writer does not crochet exactly as you do! The only way to guarantee the fit is to check your gauge.

Gentleness always has a place. What is given, what is shared, possessed without possession for all time. If you are simply joining a new ball or skein of yarn in the same color, it's best to do it at the beginning of a row because it is easier to hide the tail of the yarn. For successful results, it is essential to test your crochet against this measurement before you start a project. Then measure your swatch using a ruler or knit gauge tool.
Your swatch have to look right to you. Try different needle sizes until you get the proper gauge. What if my stitch gauge matches, but not my row gauge? Of the two, the stitch gauge over 4 inches, 10 cms is more important. In a sweater pattern, for example, most patterns will tell you to work so many inches cms to the underarm, then so many inches cms to the neckline shaping. In this case, it doesn't matter if your row gauge is a bit off since you're working in cms too.
In most cases, if you can match the stitch gauge, your row gauge shouldn't be too far off. Do I make a 2X? What do you recommend? I think you could go with a 2X or a 3X depending on how loose you want the overall sweater to be.

A blanket in this stitch sounds lovely.
Sick kids are exhausting on everyone. Omg this is just perfect. I read through the whole pattern like I always do and I have to make this. Thank you and your sister for working so hard to share this pattern with us. Thank you for making things easy too.
Your blog and Mamainastitch are my two absolute favs. Thank you for such kind words. I have a question. I see six size categories but when I go to set up the pattern on Knit Companion I see five size choices for the back. What am I not seeing?
There should be six size choices for both the back measurement and the back piece. Can you maybe restate it? You could sub most worsted weight yarns for this. Is this a typo or decrease? I hope you can figure out what I am refering too. But I so much want to try this pattern. Thank you for allowing us to get it free. Oooh, great catch Phyllis! Thanks so much for pointing that out. Let me look it it and get back to you asap. Thanks again for spotting that! Purchased the pattern and was reading thru this morning.
I noticed that on page 3 for the Ribbing instructions Row 2 only shows 5 sizes in parentheses. And also thru the rest of the pattern there are sections with only 5 sizes instead of 6.
Is this a typo? There should be 6 sizes listed for easy row? Thanks for your help! Thanks so much for catching this! To get the latest version, go to your LoveCrochet.

They start on a different row depending on your size. But yes, you do sl st the number of stitches for your size: Quick question… with the ribbing, do you end each row by crocheting into the hole the chain 2 makes, or by crocheting into the chain itself? I think I fixed it by sizing down to a 5. Mine is still a bit larger than yours with a 5. I do either, depending on the project. I say if you find a way that looks preferable, do that! Are we supposed to use the row 1 of the back? If so when you read row 1 it shows stitches and not ?
What am I missing here? Congrats on tackling your first sweater! I can see why this might be confusing. The reason Row 1 has sts at the end is because the ch 2 at the beginning counts as 1 st, then you work more for a total of Does that make sense?
