Ok, I'm a beginner hooker, and I have a serious problem. I figured out my gauge for my sweater, and did the starting chain with a hook that was 2 sizes larger than my current hook. I even tried it on for size. Unfortunately, the sweater goes lower on my hips than I thought...and now the starting chain is too tight! Any suggestions as to how I could loosen it? I thought I might be able to put a SC at the bottom, cut out the starting chain and tie off the end. Sigh...lots of hours into this sweater (the unseamly sweater from happy hooker).

HELP!!!

If you're a beginning hooker are you sure you want to start with a sweater?

Invention, my dear friends, is 93% perspiration, 6% electricity, 4% evaporation, and 2% butterscotch ripple.

My current craft project: crochet domokun doll.

i don't know how to answer your question, but i say go for it on starting with a sweater, you will learn a lot, and have a great sweater in the end, my first knitting project was a sweater for my hubby, taught me a hell of a lot, and he loves it, wears it all the time.

go for it girl!!! hopefully someone can answer your question...

Thanks for the advice and encouragement. I figured out what I did wrong, and fixed it (yay!). Hopefully there will be a pic when I'm done!
