  1. I haven’t crocheted in a few years and have never done a garment. Thought I could tackle this one but I am a bit confused on the pattern.


      • If I figure out the first line I will have it I think. I have never seen a pattern written like this. So where it says chain (42, 51, 51, 57, 57, 69, 84) is that congruent with size: (XS, S/M, L/XL, 2X, 3X)? So I want to make the XL so that means I chain 57?


      • So then it says for Row 1: SC in 2nd ch from the hook, SC, INC, SC (11, 11, 11, 11, 11, 15, 20), INC, SC (11, 20, 20, 26, 26, 30, 35), INC, SC (11, 11, 11, 11, 11,15, 20), INC, SC 2, 1 CHAIN, TURN, (45,54, 54, 60, 60, 72, 87)
