love this pattern i have three colors i want to use, grey for the border and i have green and beige/brown but don't know what way to use the green and beige/ brown colors any ideas in what order to use them?

WOW, lots of directions for something called "EASY"! LOL... I like the sweater, so I'll give it a try. Thanks.

For those who were wondering about sizes/measurements, we have included them above. We also updated the format to make it a little easier to read. Hope this helps everyone! And, as always, let us know if there's anything else we can help with! Thanks again!

It's simple. Really. 1. This is not a one size fits all pattern. Under "Materials" the first and second lines are to be understood as a Quantity of One Crochet Hook in the sizes noted. 2. To get your size: Sizes are listed as S, (M, L, 1X, 2X.) Let's say you want a size L. Under "Finished Measurements", your bust size would be 47 (41=S (43 1/2=M, 47=L, etc), and your length would be 31 (30=S (30=M, 31=L, etc). In the body of the pattern, for instance, go to the section for "Back" and "Border". The instructions read: "With larger hook and B, Ch 74 (80, 86, 92, 98). You would chain 86 for size L. For row 1, you would work 85 sc. On the Body: Row 1 would have 29 pattern repeats for size L. And then you would work until the piece measures 31" /78.5 cm.

The layout of the pattern is VERY confusing. The layout does shorten the writing of the pattern but makes it difficult to follow. I need a 1x but how am I going to know which size pattern to follow?

Under "Instructions:" SIZES S (M, L, 1X, 2X) FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: Bust ... (gives measurements) Length ... (gives measurements)

The First line of the material list says ONE SIZE,I hook or size to obtain gauge , then the next line says ONE SIZE J hook for borders That sounds like it is a One size fits all pattern . I suppose if you're on the petite size, you would use a smaller hook, or if you are big busted or otherwise, you'd use a larger hook to adjust the gauge(s). That is my guess

Can't figure out the sizes from the pattern instructions.

Hi Everybody, No sizes are listed, but are available at caron.con . And they are S ( M, L, 1X, 2X). Hope this helps all.

Want to make this but what are the sizes please???

Exactly what I have been looking for. I can picture it in several yummy colors.

What are the sizes 8,10,12 and so forth

What are the sizes of this pattern?
