I'm about to start my first adult sweater!
I'm having trouble figuring out which size to make. The pattern says for
S [M, L, XL, XXL]
the finished chest measurement will be 40 [43, 46.5, 49.5, 54.5]
So, my question is: how do I measure my husband's chest? (right under his armpits? middle of the rib cage? should he have his arms up? inhale? exhale? etc...)
And, when I have his chest measurement, how do I decide which size to make? Should it be the closest match? Or do I want the sweater to be an inch or 2 bigger? Or even bigger, to allow for wearing it over a shirt?
