This design has a square back with a circular collar. Can be worn loose, with a belt or buttoned.

Bust measurement varies, depending on if or where you choose to button it. (Approximately 32 - 36 for small/medium and 38 - 42 for large/x-large with additional inches for the plus size addition.)

It is not form-fitting, but more of a loose style to button or let loose. It is not a tight fit around the armhole openings and is meant to be a more open and comfortable style. You can crochet around the arm holes if you want to to tighten it up.

Instructions are for small/medium and large/extra large, with additional instructions to add more to the outer circle if desired, adding length for tall torsos and more coverage for plus size. Approximate yardage for the small/medium without the additional collar increase is listed at 510 yards. And the 710 yards is approximately what you’ll need for the large/extra large with the additional collar increase. I would recommend buying extra yarn in case you want the extra coverage.
