PATTERN INFORMATION
SIZES
XS (S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL, 4XL)
Bust circumference of the finished sweater: 42 ½ (47 ¼, 47 ¼, 52, 56 ½, 61 ¼, 66, 70 ¾)” / 106.5 (118, 118, 130, 141.5, 153, 165, 176.5) cm.
To fit the actual bust: 28 (32, 36, 40, 44, 48, 52, 56)” / 70 (80, 90, 100, 110, 120, 130, 140) cm.
Designed to be worn with approximately 11-15” / 28-38 cm of positive ease. Shown in size S.
Upper sleeve circumference: 13 (13 ¾, 15 ¼, 16, 16 ¾, 18 ¼, 20 ½, 22)” / 32.5 (34, 38, 40, 42, 45.5, 51.5, 55) cm.
When choosing the size, please pay attention to the upper sleeve circumference above. Since the sweater is oversized and for example sizes S and M have the same bust circumference, it’s more important that the upper sleeve is the size you like.

Shown in Sandnes Garn Double Sunday (118 yds / 108 m per 50 g; 100 % merino wool), color 1012.
If you’d like to add length, one pattern repeat (28 rows) takes approximately 120 (130, 130, 145, 155, 170, 185, 195) yds / 110 (120, 120, 130, 145, 155, 170, 180) m of extra yarn. Please note that the given amounts are only an estimate.
