Size Guide

The Louvre Sweater is designed to have approx. 20 cm [7¾ inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be 20 cm [7¾ inches] larger in circumference than your bust measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) are designed to fit a bust circumference of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) 120-130 (130-140) cm [31½-33½ (33½-35½) 35½-37½ (37½-39½) 39½-43¼ (43¼-47¼) 47¼-51¼ (51¼-55) inches].

The measurements for the finished garment are on the front page of the pattern. Before beginning your project, measure yourself to determine which size to knit. For example, if you measure 92 cm [36¼ inches] around your bust (or around the widest part of your upper body) you should knit a size M. A size M sweater has a bust circumference of 114 cm [45 inches] which in the given example would give you 22 cm [8¾ inches] of positive ease.
