In the dead of night, long after dusk and before the dawn, strange beasts and beings are said to gather when the “veil between the worlds” is at its thinnest. A time of transformation, change, and connection between all things in the conscious and unconscious realms. Relish the joy of this communion as you conjure one stitch at a time for a comfy, somber sweater you’ll want to wear from day to night.

SIZING
Available fit between a 30”- 64” (76 – 162cm) bust with approx. 0 - 2” (0 – 5cm) of positive ease.

⭐️ All of my garment patterns are #sizeinclusive up to at least a 60” (152 cm) full bust circumference.

Sizes by finished bust circ
In inches: 30, (35, 40, 44, 49) {53, 57, 61, 64}
In cm: 79 (89, 101.5, 112, 124.5) {134.5, 145, 155, 162.5}
See full schematic illustration in the photos to the left!

To choose your size, measure the circumference around the fullest part of your bust, then add 0-2” (depending on how much ease you want) and choose the closest size. You can size up or down if you are between sizes depending on whether you want more or less ease.

The model has a 40” (101.5cm) bust and is wearing size 3.
