Sample shown is size 6, or 48” / 122 cm size on a 44 1⁄4” / 112.5 cm bust. Recommended ease is between 4-12” / 10-30.5 cm positive ease at bust and 1-2” / 2.5-5 cm of positive ease at armholes, but since ease is a very personal thing this is up to knitter’s preference. When in doubt for picking your size, check the schematic and choose the size that best fits your upper arm circumference plus 1-2” / 2.5-5 cm of positive ease. See also notes for fitting armhole depth on page 3.
