Doh! I found the pattern on Ravelry and thanks to a very detailed image realize my error: instead of working across the foundation horizontally, I should be working around vertically. The pattern should be more clear and to allfreecrochet.com, hence the need for bigger pictures, which I've been saying all along. Hooker Leo AHooker'sWorld.com

I am restarting this pattern and decided to double check my projected stitch count before having to frog it once again. I have had a friend check my math and I am short 8 stitches for the C cup, using the center of the original 19 sc; and 6 stitches short using the center, incorporating two scs from the 5 at the end. I have searched the patons website, ravelry, and allfreecrochet trying to find errata. Neither patons or ravelry have the pattern on their website and I cannot find an errata link on allfreecrochet. I do not recommend pattern, based on above findings. Hooker Leo AHookersWorld.com

Does anyone know how I would go about adjusting this for a D cup?

in the past, I've done these and just added a couple of rows of edging to the outside to make the cups larger. I've also had trouble getting the bottoms to fit right, but the top alone is nice with jeans or shorts.
