Airflow is a seamless open-front cardigan knit from the top down.
The design uses the contiguous method of shaping set-in sleeves developed by Susie M.
XS (S, M)L, XL, XXL.
To fit bust size: 73.5 (83.5, 94)104, 114, 124.5 cm / 29 (33, 37)41, 45, 49 inches.
The cardigan is designed to be form fitting in the back and worn open in the front. Choose a size based on the actual finished measurement at underarm (see schematic on page 3), which should be 5-10 cm / 2-4” less than your actual bust. If your back is broad relative to your total bust circumference, consider going up a size so the garment is not too tight across the back.
