When the pattern says ...need help with this

for a sweater it says cast on…66(44,33,22,21,) just what does it mean;does it mean cast on 66 for all of the ;other sizes…sorry if this sounds confusing…brenda

Each number is a size starting with the smallest size and going up to the biggest. Are those actual numbers in a pattern? They seem a bit odd. Sometimes they seem wrong but the smaller sizes have more stitches in some places than the larger.

Yes, those are CO numbers for the different sizes. The reason the numbers may be smaller for the larger sizes would have to do with the design. If you have a link to the pattern, or can tell us the name and where you’re casting on, we can help you a little more.
