Stretching really depends on the fiber you're using. For example cotton has no memory, meaning it will stretch & stretch, while wool has excellent memory, so you can tug on it and it'll snap right back into place.

With wool-ease you can really just throw it in the washer & dryer. Take it out when it's a little bit damp and pin it or roll it to finish drying (rolling will take longer to dry).

Yep, you slip a stitch. Put your needle in the stitch as if to purl, then just slide the stitch to your right needle. And yes, you stay in the rib pattern.

I'd go with the Harmony guides, I love mine.

I haven't been inspired by crochet much lately, but I saw the Spanish Moss coat yesterday and fell madly in love! I picked up the issue.

They're generally meant for weaving, but you can find them in just about any fiber type and use them however you'd like. They're usually a pretty good deal. One word of caution about using a WW cotton...your sweater will stretch like the dickens.

I can't believe I just used the word 'dickens' in a sentence...I'm getting so old.

Hmmm...could you maybe link to the pattern? That might give us a better perspective.

I think maybe you got so used to casting on that you're not reading the rest of the pattern properly...lines 7 -12 do NOT say to co, only to bo.
