I'm doing the free baby bunting pattern from the Lionbrand website, but I'm a bit confused.
I know to use a small hook for the first 6 rows, then change to a larger hook for the following 6 rows. But then do I go back to a small hook for another 6 rows, and back to the larger hook, swapping hook sizes every 6 rows? Or do I continue the full 15.5" in the larger hook size?

The patterns here:

And for those that don't wish to register, this is the part I'm confused about:
With smaller hook, ch 62.
Row 1 (RS): Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across - 61 sc.
Rows 2-6: Ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across.
Change to larger hook and work Pattern Stitch Row 1 - 6 pattern repeats.
Continue in pattern until piece measures 15 1/2 in. [39.5 cm] from beg, end with a WS row.

Change to smaller hook."

It looks like after you switch to the larger hook you keep using it until it specifically says to switch back to the smaller hook.

The smaller hook sections seem to all be the cuff sections; and that's pretty standard, I think.

Good luck!
