From the Designer: When choosing a size, it is intended that you choose a size equal to actual chest measurement or less. 0” to 2” negative ease is acceptable. The model in the photograph is wearing size Small (32”) with about 2” negative ease. The second photo shows the same garment with 0” ease.

Note from Designer: This pattern, when copied to the Yarnspirations site (like many of the patterns copied over after the sale) is incorrect or has information omitted. I have been given written permission to post the PDFs of my free Caron patterns on Ravelry.

Although this pattern is sized to 3X, please be aware that the sleeves are lantern style sleeves. This means that the sleeves go straight down to the wrist. The circumference around the bicep is close to the same as the circumference around the wrist. Although it may not be as apparent in the first 3 or 4 sizes, it will become apparent in the larger sizes. If you do not care for lantern style sleeves, you may want to make alterations to the pattern when stitching it up.
