Lacy Pinapples Help!

Question

I decided to make a top from Crochet Today (Lacy Pineapples). I am a little worried about the size that it's supposed to be. The directions say:

 

Sizes: S/M (L/1X, 2X/3X)

finished chest: 42 (49, 56)"/106.5 (124.5, 142)cm

finished length: 23 (231/2, 24)"/ 58.5 (59.5, 61)cm

 

I am worried that the measurements given are on the large side for the S/M size. A 36" would hang off on me. At first when I started I thought that it was large b/c you need an undershirt on but I don't think that all this excess explains the increased size anymore....Help!

That does seem a bit odd since it appears to have negative ease (fits like a skin).

 

I don't know how to fix it other than a finer yarn or a smaller hook.

Do you think I could just reduce the number of pattern repeats?

 

sure that could work if the repeats are the right size. You are wanting to remove 6 inches but that is from front and back.

 

if a motif repeat is about 3 inches it would be about right...

 

You could then play with hooks and yarn to make it fit.
