The finished sizes for this pattern seem large at first glance. Though these measurements represent the circumference at the hem of the sweater and throughout the body, the smaller gauge and traveling stitches at the yoke force the fabric at the underarm to gather into a functionally smaller circumference, creating a slight A-line shape.

When choosing a size to make for this pattern, consider that the functional circumference at the underarm will be approximately 37” (41”, 46”, 51”, 58”) for the sizes given, and choose a size that will give you a few inches of positive ease.
