ABOUT THE PATTERN
The Disaster Top is worked bottom up on circular needles. First, work the body, then the front of the yoke, then the back of the yoke,
then sew the shoulders. Work the sleeves in the round then sew them to the top. Finally work ruffles along the body and the yokes.

SIZES
S (M) L (XL)
Sizes above correspond with the following chest circumference:
81-86 (87-92) 93-98 (99-104) cm
Measure your own chest circumference to determine which size will fit you the best. If you run between 2 sizes, we recommend to
choose the size up.

MEASUREMENTS
The Disaster Top is designed to have approx. 25 cm of negative ease when measured under the armpit. Meaning the fit should be
approx. 25 cm smaller in circumference than your actual bust measurements. The Disaster Top is tight, so if you want to be more
comfortable, we recommend knitting one size up.
Photos above: Size S / 168 cm tall / Chest circumference: 90 cm
NOTE: On the photos above, I’m wearing size S, but based on my bust size, size M would have been a better fit. During the test,
some of my testknitters added extra rows to the body lenght. Check the measurements on diagram page 8 before beginning work.
