One size fits shoulders measurements of 37” – 47”. Adjustment of the size is rather easy, add or remove an even number of stitches to the cast on and continue to decrease with picots until all stitches are bound off. Remember that adding stitches will change the required yardage needed and the garment will end up changing length as well.
