I know that when you are sewing a sweater you are supposed to use the size based on your high bust measurements, and then make adjustments for your full bust. Is this the same with knitting and crocheting sweaters?
I found this pattern http://www.coatsandclark.com/Crafts/Knitting/Projects/Apparel/LM0259+Knit+Lace+Border+Top.htm
and I think it might be a good first sweater project for me, but I am afraid that it will either be too big all around, or it will be too tight around the bust for me to ever feel comfortable with. I don’t really understand the sizing. It has a range of sizes for xs, s, m, l, xl, and then it has sizes for busts. How do you find the right size?
