The construction of this design is knit top down seamlessly and in the round. This design features the option of colour blocking, working with one solid colour, or basically using any kind of striping you want, it’s your hoodie and I want you to LOVE what you’re wearing. The design features a snug hood and a hand knit i-cord drawstring. The hoodie includes positive ease of 2-6” depending on which size you choose (For example: Size medium has a range of 37-40” for bust size measurement, the finished bust measurement of the hoodie is 42”, meaning that if your bust is 37” your hoodie will have 5” of positive ease). Please choose your size according to your bust size. If in-between sizes I recommend deciding wether you would like a looser fit or a more snug fit and choose based off of your preferred ease.

Size Options: (based on bust measurement in inches)
XXS (XS, S , M , L , XL)2XL , 3XL , 4XL , 5XL, 6XL
XXS 25-28” (XS 29-32”, S 33-36” , M 37-40” , L 41-44” , XL 45-47”) 2XL 48-52” , 3XL 53-56” , 4XL 57-60” , 5XL 61-64”, 6XL 65-68”

2-6” of positive ease, meaning this design should fit relatively loose unless you size down and lose out on positive ease. If in between sizes, I recommend deciding wether you would like a looser fit or a more snug fit and choose based off of your preferred ease.

Drops Air
For this design feel free to use any category 4/Worsted/Aran weight yarn that meets gauge. Ideally if subbing yarn, I would recommend a blown yarn similar to Drops Air to get that extra fluffy and light feel, however this is not mandatory at all. As long as gauge is met properly any yarn in this weight category will work perfectly.
