    I got the pattern off of Ravelry. There are parentheses on the pattern but there are no numbers listed in them. I am using a lighter yarn and making the biggest size. I’ve come to #14 and don’t want to go any further until I know for sure if I am doing it right. I need the numbers that go in the parentheses to go one with the rest of the pattern. Please help.

      I need to rephrase my question, How many sc do you need to make for the pockets for the different sizes? On #14, if you only ch 11, the pocket opening is to small on the 3X/4X size, and would be big on the small size. I am trying to figure out how to adapt the pattern for the pocket on the other sizes.

        Hi Denise, because it is bulky yarn, the chain 11 for the pocket opening works for all sizes. When you are actually doing the pockets, you will be single crocheting in the base of the pocket (11), in the bases of the double crochets around the ch 11 plus one sc before and after the dc’s around the ch 11 (11) plus 1 sc in each of the 2 corners (2). So, while the pocket opening is only a ch 11, the actual pocket is a total of 24 stitches. Hope that helps!

          Could you please let me know, how many dc clusters of three are there on the starting row. I am at the part where I did the bottom, one side, the back, and now I am starting the other side and have too many dc clusters.

        I’m also currently working on the pattern using a lighter weight yarn…The pocket chain for that is 13 ch, so the actual pocket will be 28 single crochets.

      I’m unsure. It’s classified as Super Bulky 6 Weight. I’m unsure how thick the yarn gets in the UK. I don’t really know.

    Looks super cosy and comfy. Very nicely done. I find myself reassigning the big Caron Sprinkle Cakes towards a beautiful sweater/cardigan for myself in the very near future! Thanks so much for sharing.
