  1. What size is this for? Also, I am just learning crochet and I am still in easy skill levels. Is this sweater an easy one?

  3. I'm having trouble with the stitch count between rows 1 and 2. I end up with the right number on row 1, but row 2 isn't adding up. When I follow your instructions, I end up with 68 stitches in row 2 instead of your 62. Also, in order to have your row 2 instructions work properly, I would have to have 57 stitches in row 1, not 54. Could you please check these numbers? I'd really like to have this work out, as it's adorable!!

  4. This is a beautiful sweater. One question. I'm not clear how many rows you start out with pink, then white before changing to all pink?
