I changed the "X" stitch to a double crochet for my own use without any issues. However, your instructions are very confusing. Where does it say that you are starting with the sleeve or side of the front? Where does it say that when starting with the V-split, that you count up from the bottom or down from the top to the 58th stitch to attach the yarn and chain, continuing with the pattern then chain 40? Hopefully there are no more confusing issues with this pattern. I hate ripping out. Can you please clarify these issues and send out a revision?
