Hi CrochetMe team, I have a little problem with his pattern. There are two hook sizes given but I can't find any directions in the pattern that describe when I have to use which hook size. Also, there is no hook size given for the gauge. Is the tunic crocheted with the bigger hook and is the smaller hook only used for the collar? It seems its stitches are a bit more dense, but I am not sure. I really appreciate your help. Many thanks!
