Question 2: on the top of the hood it has 30sts & 30sts=60 But from my 80 or 82 sts-12=68 Where should the other 8 sts go? Thank you for your help

The sts at the top of the hood is what you'd be left with after decreases. __________________ sue- knitting heretic

According to the schematic, you'll gradually increase to 85 (42, center stitch, 42) and then decrease down to 61 (30, center stitch, 30) . Are there more directions? The chart doesn't show the increases and decreases, just that the happen on each side of the center stitch. __________________ "Trust the pattern!"

I don't see where you get the 11 sts from. It says 41 on the back (20+1+20) + 14 on each front. 28 plus 41 is 69. I was mistaken about the 1 st, it's accounted for in the 41 sts. That doesn't fit the pattern repeat though. Japanese patterns and charts are not easy to read, couldn't you find something else you like that's a bit less challenging? __________________ sue- knitting heretic
