Sizing follows Craft Yarn Council standards for women’s sizing.
This sweater has a classic fit, with 4-5 ”(10.2-12.7 cm) of positive ease. If you are between sizes, increase the size for a looser sweater or decrease the size for a more fitted sweater. Measure the wearer’s bust and choose the size closest to the wearer’s bust measurement, under the heading, “To fit bust.”
The instructions and thread requirements for the X-Small size are given outside the parentheses, with Small, Medium, Large, X-Large, 2X, 3X, 4X, and 5X in parentheses, like this: X-Small (Small, Medium, Large, X-Large, 2X, 3X, 4X, 5X).
When only one number is given, it applies to all sizes.
When a set of instructions does not apply to all sizes, the numbers that would normally be given for sizes to which the instructions do not apply will be replaced by hyphens, like this: – (-, -, -, -, 1, 1, 3, 5)
