  1. The adult size increases to 60 stitches, but I mint understand how as the directions are the same as the child size, see round 5. Please clarify, thanks!

    1. I'm unsure sure what part you're confused on. I have each size written out? Please let me know what part is confusing so I can better help :)

  2. For teen/adult size
    How does it go from 48 stitches in row 4 to 60 in row 5-9 when you're only doing a dc in each stitch around?
