Finished Measurements: XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL Bust circumference: 35¾ (37¾) 39¼ (41¼) 45¼ (49¼) 53¼ (57) 61 inches; 91 (96) 100 (105) 115 (125) 135 (145) 155 cm Before beginning your project, measure yourself with a measuring tape around your bust (or your widest upper body part) to determine which size will fit you the best. For example, if you measure 90 cm [35½ inches] around your bust (or your widest upper body part) you should knit a size S. A size S sweater has a bust circumference of 96 cm [37¾ inches], which in the given example would give you 5 cm [2 inches] of positive ease.
If you have seen me around the shop, you may know that I love nothing more than a puffy vest. I wear one every day! I decided to knit PetiteKnits Friday Slipover to up my vest game a wee bit. It should be a quick knit as it is knit top-down and has no sleeves! The original pattern suggests you use a fingering weight with mohair, but I wanted to use just one yarn for a more tailored look, so I opted to use Sandes Garn Duo, a yummy blend of merino and cotton. I can hardly wait to get it off the needles!
