FULLY CUSTOMIZABLE. This pattern is written based on measurements and can be easily adjusted to your custom measurements. The pattern includes suggested measurements to create adult sizes S-5X just as a guideline, but the pattern includes sizing tips to customize your sweater to fit ANY size, width, or length. So no worries if you are not between that size range, you can totally make this garment! I write my patterns this way to give you the creative freedom to make your item to fit your unique size and style preferences.

Approx. 900-1,800 yards of worsted weight yarn (for a cropped sweater with ¾ sleeves)
