I made the small pattern to fit me perfactly, so it's a 5-6, med 7- to some 9s, and 8- to almost 10. I'm testing on friends and family still. So please forgive me if you run across any errors.

that explains everything I'm 4'11 and like a 2 or 4 in nearly everything. That explains the hugeness.

Yeah I'm 5'3, my normal size is a 5, but I like room to breathe so I wear most of my clothes a size bigger. Sorry KatsaC next time I will have to try to make something on the xs side.

Hey, awesome pattern, one small question, how big do the sizes match up the small medium and large?

Such an awesome idea, I wonder If I can change it and add sleeves and Tegan and Sara for a friend.

Yes you can add sleeves, you just have to make them separate.

Do you use every bit of the yarn or do you have leftovers?? I only have about 10.5 oz of my yarn.

I had some leftover yarn when I was finished, but just a little bit for the small sweater.

Yes, you can complete this project in 4hours if you are a speedy crocheter. I use big hooks for larger stitches, which equal longer rows and qicker to complete.Plus just 4hrs to myself to craft with no one else around but the pup. :)

When you say '12 rows 31' in the middle what do you mean by that?
This looks lovely - I can't believe it only takes 4 hours! Favorited :)

12 rows 31 doesn't mean anything, I was just counting how many stripes thats all.
