Why is only one size given? I would be interested in making this item but need a larger size (x-large or xx-large)

For size 38 you'll need to cast on 100 sts.
SC means single crochet.

Are you sure you mean #19 needles? You couldn't adjust the pattern to fit that big of a needle. It could be adjusted to knit in the round, but on the recommended needles or the ones you'll use to obtain the gauge. Maybe you meant #9?

I'm new to knitting and am wondering how would I adjust this pattern to knit it on size #19 circular needles?
Thank you!

I should love to knit this simple, drapey garment, but need the number of stitches for size 38.
Also, forgive my ignorance, but what does 'sc' stand for, in the crochet indications?
Thank you,
