Sizes: 36 (41, 45, 48, 52, 56, 60, 64)” / 91 (104, 114,
122, 132, 142, 152, 163)cm chest circumference. These
sizes are the finished measurements of the sweater.

I recommend selecting a size 2 – 4” / 5” – 10cm larger
than your actual chest circumference for a fit with a bit of
positive ease.

The gray and blue sample is the 45” / 114cm size shown on a 40” / 102cm chest circumference.

circumference.
