Yours. (Fallside is a CustomFit pattern and the instructions will be created to match your choice of measurements.)
This pattern is available from customfit.amyherzogdesigns.com for $12.50.

Fallside is a design built directly into CustomFit, which means that each Fallside pattern is written specifically to your choice of gauge and size.

I’ve been itching to make a cozy, long, un-shaped sweater with a big fun collar for some time. And when my god-daughter asked me to make her a special garment out of the most perfectly-luscious, perfectly-purple yarn, I knew my big-collar design would be just the thing.

Fallside pairs simple ribbing detail with a straight shape and some fun asymmetry to create a cozy classic. It’s worked from the bottom up in pieces with set-in sleeves; the asymmetrical collar and buttons are picked up and added after seaming.

The sample uses a tunic length and long sleeves, but you can change either before creating your pattern by selecting different lengths on this page. Straight sweaters in CustomFit are worked with a single stitch count from CO to bust; that count is determined by the largest of all hip, waist, and bust circumferences.

Chameleon is one of my very favorite sweater yarns, and I love it for this design: It’s unspeakably soft, it’s strong, and it has a beautiful luster and drape. I like it at about 7.5 stitches to the inch. At that gauge, you’ll need approximately 4 (4, 5, 5, 5, 6, 6, 6, 7, 7, 7, 8) hanks of Chameleon for a standard size 30 (32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60)’’ / 76 (81, 86, 91, 97, 102, 107, 112, 122, 132, 142, 152) cm garment (finished measurements; assumes a tunic length)

One more note on yardage – while I’ve given approximate quantities for standard size sweaters, CustomFit will make Clearview in the size and gauge of your choice. And it’s pretty tough to give yardage requirements for any possible combination! If you’re not using the recommended yarn, and/or you’re not a standard size, I recommend Hannah Fettig’s amazing app, stashbot, to get a sense of your yardage requirements.
