CLAiRE is worked seamlessly from the top down. The neck is shaped with short rows and you work the dropped shoulder with contiguous increases along the shoulder markers. Then you work the back and front separately for the length of the armhole. Join front and back and work the body in rounds down to the bottom ribbing. You pick up sts for the sleeves to knit them down to the ribbing. You pick up sts on the neckline to work the collar in rounds.

Details:

SIZES
1 (2, 3, 4, 5)
Finished bust circumference in cm/inch:
102 (118, 136, 154, 170) cm /
40 (46.5, 53.5, 60.5, 67)“
The garment is intended to be worn with approx. 18-35 cm (7-13.75”) of positive ease.
To fit bust cm/inch:
70-81 (83-95, 97-113, 115-131, 133-155) cm
27.5-32 (33-37.5, 38-44.5, 45.25-51.5, 52.5-61)”

Size guide
To pick your size, measure your full bust, then add your desired ease and pick the size closest to that number.
Sample: 88 cm (35.25”) full bust + 30 cm (11.75”) ease = 118 cm (46.5”) = Size 2.
Tip: For smaller sizes and narrow bodies I recommend to choose a size that gives you a minimum of 28 cm (11”) ease.
For bigger sizes and busty girls I recommend to choose a size with a maximum of 20 cm (8”) ease.
