Super-stretchy cables and ribs hug your curves and flatter your figure with no troublesome side shaping. The deep, wide neckline scoop is flattering to busty curves, but looks just as good on the less endowed worn over a smart collared shirt. The sleeves are knit in Stockinette and are long with a snug ribbed cuff.
This classic sweater is designed to be worked with 0-8” of negative ease in the body and 0-2” of positive ease in the sleeve. Use the information below to determine the perfect body and sleeve size for you. Follow Instruc-tions for body through armhole and neck shaping, then work the armhole depth and sleeve instructions for your sleeve size.

Selecting body size:
Measure around your waist (or wherever the smallest part falls on you, between bust and hip). Select the size that has a relaxed measurement of 0-2” less than your smallest curve. Compare the fully stretched measure-ment for that size to your actual bust measurement (or hip, if you’re wider on bottom). If your biggest curve’s measurement is no larger than that number, then that’s the correct size for you. If your biggest curve is larger, go up one size.
Ex. The smallest part of my waist is 34”, so I’ll select the 32” at-ease size. That size will stretch up to 44”, which is my bust measurement, so that is the size that will fit me best.

Selecting sleeve size:
Measure around your arm, just below the underarm. Select the first size that is larger than your measurement.
Ex. My top arm measurement is 14”, so I selected the 14.25” sleeve size.
