Hi Luz,

Hi Luz,
I would advise you to start the sweater totally the same as I started it using one size larger crochet hook. After working 14 or 16 rounds (more rounds you will work, more wider sleeves will be), pick up more double crochets to fit your size. I suggest to pick up about 198 dc, but double check your gauge. Happy crochet!

Hi sarvani,

Hi sarvani,
For XS size, I would suggest picking up about 144 double crochets or 8 double crochets above each repeat. I'll show how to do it in the second part of the video tutorial. Happy crochet!
