This is a simple garter stitch bomber/cardi that comes in one size, measurments included in pattern but finished flat lay measurments once seamed are - hip area of 130cm/51” with front ribbing side by side and not crossed over, bust is approx 115cm/45”.

This comes up really quickly and has great movement, with exaggerated sleeves and a curved hem achieved by picking up less stitches along the front edge.
