BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.
When matching the gauge in a pattern, the project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches to match the gauge, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches, try a larger size hook or needles.
Note: A large hook is used to create an open fabric that will easily stretch to fit a range of sizes.
