It depends on what size you're making. Sizes are listed like this: S(M, L, XL) If you want to make a Large, for example, you would use the numbers that are in the middle position.

THe first # is for the smallest size of the pattern. THe next #s refer to the bigger sizes, so just cast on for whichever size of the pattern you're making. Then make sure to follow the pattern for that size. For example they'll put the pattern as an XS, so the first # you see would be for the XS size, then the (xx, xx, xx) would be S, M, L size or whatever sizes they say. HTH.

help..i need help..
To make sure that you keep to the same size throughout, it helps to highlight the number of stitches for your size everywhere in the pattern. That way you won't use the number for another size.
