The sweater is supposed to have an oversized and long fit. To evaluate which size suits you the most you can choose to measure your favourite oversize sweater or to rely on the recommended measurements above. In the photo a size 36 on a bust measurement of 87 cm is shown. If your measurement lies between two sizes, choose the larger size.

Note: As a “one-woman-show” I translate all my patterns myself. As a native German minor grammar mistakes in both the English and Danish patterns can occur. The patterns have been test knitted, so you should be good to go - if you have any questions or problems with the understanding, don’t hesitiate to contact me at - Thank you so much for your support!
