Notes on Fit:
This design is optimised for a relaxed fit. My suggestion is to select a size with at least 5cm (2”) of ease, and as much as 15cm (6”) of ease. In the photos, models are shown wearing the same sample, with 2-6” of positive ease.

This pattern is compatible with a wide range of yarns classified as chunky/bulky, with a meterage in the vicinity of 
100m (109y) per 100g (3.5oz).
