Beth said...

Frances (I messed up naming the sweater, she's a girl not a boy) is a local alpaca. It was purchased at Unique Yarns in Rockford, IL.

I'm going to give it a try. This will be my first sweater. I bought some beautiful chocolate brown (natural color) alpaca. It looks like a beautiful sweater.

Dear Francis,
In reviewing your wonderful pattern for Francis Revisited, I became aware that you have only written directions for the size XS, with no numbers or stitch amounts listed for any other size. I would like to make the size Medium. Can you help? I can be e-mailed at windrunner1111@gmail.com. Thank you so much. Marilyn

Hi Beth! I love this sweater and I am ready to attempt my first sweater project. I noticed that you only gave directions for the xs. I would like to make the sweater in xl can you help me? Thanks!

Beth said...

The pattern is written in multiple sizes from XS all the way up to XXL. If you download the pattern all sizes and instructions are there.

hello :) I also downloaded the pattern and it does only give instructions for casting on 80 stitches with no alternate # given for different sizes. I think I need to adjust the gauge for my yarn and the larger sizes would be really helpful!! its a beautiful sweater. I started one for my 11 yr daughter (this araucaina yarn I am using is turning out a smaller sweater) thanks! :) my email is: msladybugy@yahoo.com

Hi there! Love this pattern but I'm having the same problem others have noted, I downloaded the instructions and it doesn't offer the number of stitches for a small. Anyway you could let me know those details. I'd love to be able to finish this pattern

The stitch counts for other sizes are in the parentheses to the right of the first number and go in order. The stitch count for a small is the first number with in the parenthetical.
