Sizing follows the Craft Yarn Council’s standards for Women’s sizes. #sizeinclusive

This sweater has an over sized fit, and drapes loosely around the body. Measure the bust of the wearer, and choose the size that is closest to the wearer’s bust measurement, under the title, “To Fit Bust”.

Instructions and yarn requirements for Size 1 are given outside the parentheses, with Size 2 and Size 3 given inside the parentheses, like this:
Size 1 (Size 2, Size 3).

When only one number is given, it applies to all sizes.

Size 1: 30”-38” (76-97 cm)
Size 2: 42”-50” (107-127 cm)
Size 3: 54”-62” (137-157 cm)
