FIT
This sweater was designed to be worn with 6-10”/15-25.5 cm of positive ease. Choose your size by adding your desired ease to your actual chest measurement and choose your size after adding these numbers together. For example, my bust measures just under 36”/91.5 cm, so I knit the Size 3 which gives me approximately 7”/17.5 cm of positive ease. Sizing for this design (particularly upper arm & armhole depth) was created with this fit in mind from sleeve length, to armhole depth and beyond.
