SIZES
To fit shoulder widths measuring 14-15 (16-16 ½, 17-17 ½) inches

  • Finished Dimensions: 30 (35, 37 ½) inches across x 30 inches from top to bottom (including fold-over collar)

  • Finished Width across Shoulders: 12 (14, 15) inches

NOTES
This piece is knit ‘sideways’ from one vertical edge to the other, rather than from top to bottom or bottom to top.
