  1. Hi, I love this pattern but I'm confused at row 13 and it's not shown in the video . . . this adds up to about 150 stitches but I only have 60 something. Should I have been increasing somewhere?

  2. Hello Hayley,

    I haven’t done this cardigan myself but based on other projects I have worked on I could try helping you. Your project has a total of 4 corners (dc ch1 dc all on same stitch)
    Every time you work a corner it’ll add 2 extra stitches to the next row, and since you have 4 corners you’ll add a total of 8 stitches every row.
    At the end of row 2 you have 66 stitches, and at the end of row 3 you should have 74, row 4 you should have 82 and so on.
    You must repeat the same steps from row 2 all the way to row 12 where you should have a total of 146 stitches.

    Hope you found this helpful.
