Frou-Frou Frustration

I failed to mention earlier that the pattern I was working on in gray for Project Spectrum is the Frou-Frou sweater from the Happy Hooker. I ripped out a good start the other day because I found out about the transposed numbers in the pattern. Now I feel like the gauge isn't right, so I may be ripping it out again - I am farther along this time, so it hurts a bit more.
I might need to take another "thinking" break on something else before I can actually frog and restart.

I love the crochet hook I am using for this project - it's just an average Boye hook, but it's glide on the yarn is the nicest I have. Some hooks have a finish that seems to stick more - maybe I am just picky. I also really like the pewter color - it reminds me of the bad guy in the Terminator 2 - just the color, not the super creepy walk.

Hey, Laura, thanks for visiting Fiber Femmes.

I did have a little trouble with the gauge; it worked out OK across but I couldn't make it work up and down. So I added ten rows to the body of the sweater and I think ten rows to the sleeves. If that's not your problem let me know and maybe I can help!

i finished FrouFrou and had to frog the whole thing. the gauge is a nightmare and it doesn't match the dimensions of the schematic at all. at least not in the smallest size. i hope you had better luck!

hmmm... I'm in the middle of this project and can't figure out the instructions for the front. First row says to end up with 35 ch-1 spaces - no problem, then next row says ch-2 counts as 1 dc to end with 34 ch-1 spaces. But next row after that has you do a sc2tog to end with 35 stitches!!

Then I can't figure out how often to decrease at neck edge. I was doing 1 every time I ended at neck edge until I hit the 24 ch-1 spaces remaning, then decrease at every other end at neck edge, but front is too long when I get to 1 stitch left.

Any ideas???
