This is an OVERSIZED garment. Each size will fit the size ranges specified:
Small: 82 to 97cms. Actual Width: 110cms

Large: 127 to 137/147cms. Actual Width: 150cms.

La Belle is worked flat from the bottom up with side seams. The entire garment uses double strand Chunky weighted yarn throughout and worked on size 12mm Needles creating a loose, pliable, cosy fabric. A good quality low pill acrylic was used. See other yarn suggestions too.

The design features an easy to create dropped stitch pattern that looks intricate and imitates an intertwined and twisted stitch. These details sit at the hemline above the ribbing, on the cuffs and on the edge of the ribbed neckline.

Please Note: Size 12mm needles were used which is readily available in South Africa but was not indicated on the drop down choice. The sizes indicated will still be fine if using a US/15. Swatching up is recomended as per gauge guidelines.
