Finished Bust Circumference: 104 (112, 122, 132, 145, 152.5) cm / 41 (44, 48, 52, 57, 60)” with 15-18 cm /6-7” of positive ease recommended.

NOTE : Garment is worked flat from the top down, beginning by casting on stitches for each back shoulder, then stitches are cast on for the back neck and the two sides are joined. The back is worked from the top down to the underarm. Shoulder stitches are picked up for the front, which is worked in the same manner as the back, then front and back are joined and worked in the round to the bottom. Stitches for sleeves are picked up around the armhole and worked in the round, increasing to the cuff, then decreased before working the ribbed cuff.

When working with yarns without dye lots, alternate yarns by working 2 rows with one ball and the next 2 rows with a second ball.
