Jessie’s Girl is a drapey, oversized sleeveless pullover, perfect to throw over a tank in the warmer months. It’s a seamless, easy knit that is worked from the bottom up and features a slightly longer back to help create the drapey silhouette.

Yarn used is a sport-weight, linen blend, knit up on a much larger needle than you typically would for this type of yarn to create a loose stitch. I recommend using a similar linen blend or cotton blend yarn.
It is meant to be oversized and is intended to be worn with lots of positive ease. Below are my recommendations for which size to make based on your actual bust measurement:
Sizes 33-37” / 84-94 cm: Small Sizes 38-41” / 87-104 cm: Medium Sizes 42-45” / 107-114 cm: Large Sizes 46-50” / 117-127 cm: X-large

Shown in size S, being worn with approx. 10”/25 cm of
44.5 (48.5, 52, 57)” / 113 (123, 132, 145) cm
(Choose a size that is approx. 7-10” / 18-25 cm larger than
your actual bust measurement.)
