Under Duress: A classic set-in sleeve V-neck pullover that is worked seamlessly from the top-down, with the sleeve caps integrally formed with the shoulders and neckline. The body and sleeves are worked by adding blocks of colour and slip-stitch ‘jagged edge’ patterning.

Finished Bust Measurements: XS: 30.75” (78cm) / S: 35.75” (90.5cm) / M: 39” (99cm) / L: 44” (111.5cm) / 1X: 47.25” (120cm) / 2X: 51.5” (130.5cm) / 3X: 54.75” (139cm)

This sweater is designed to be worn relaxed, however to achieve a good fit around the shoulder area, it is advised that you take a measurement of your back width (aka “cross back”).

Optional waist shaping is included in the pattern and can be worked to follow the contours of your body for a more fitted appearance.
