Hi Sana,

Hi Sana,
I have a question when you say about sizes s-l , Is that means it will fit small to large? Or do I have to change if I need Large size? Pls. advise.Thanks.

Hi Luz,

Hi Luz,
If your gauge will be about the same as mine, then you may follow the pattern exactly for the size L. Even if your gauge slightly change, you may work one or two extra rows before joining front and back parts together to get the right size. Happy crochet!

Hi Jerryl1971,

Hi Jerryl1971,
For that size, I would work the increase differently. I'll write you my suggestion in a day or two. Happy crochet!
