Katniss is a top down sweater that features a textured yoke, waist shaping and a loose comfortable fit. I named this sweater after Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games. May the odds be ever in your favor.

This sweater can be knit in size XS (S, M, L, XL, XXL). This sweater was designed to have a slightly loose, comfortable fit. If you want a slightly more fitted sweater you should knit a size smaller than you usually would. To figure out the best size for you consult the Craft Yarn Council woman size charts. http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/womansize.html

These are the measurements of the finished garment. Your sweater will have two inches of positive ease if knit at the correct gauge.

XS- 32 inch bust
S- 36 inch bust
M- 40 inch bust
L- 44 inch bust
XL- 48 inch bust
XXL- 52 inch bust
