About 331⁄2 (39, 421⁄4, 461⁄4, 51, 541⁄4)" (85 [99, 107.5, 117.5, 129.5, 138] cm) bust circumference. Project shown measures 39" (99 cm), modeled with 7" (18 cm) of positive ease.

Worked in a classic boat-neck silhouette, this pullover uses a technique
known as “syncopated brioche” to alternate the dominant color of the two-color brioche rib, creating a colorblock effect. The bloused shape naturally narrows at the waist without any decreases by switching to a simple seeded rib for the lower torso. By using a top-down set-in sleeve technique, the color changes easily match up without seams.
