I am knitting a tank top which has size chart as below:
To fit: 81[86;91;97;102;107)cm (and respective in inches)
I presume this is bust size? On measuring, my bust turns out to be 104cm… So which size do I chose?!
The actual measurements are given as 75[81;85;92;95;101]cm - I take it this is the bust measurement of the garment when laid flat?
Further, there is a pattern note which states the “vest is designed to be a snug fit”. Adding further confusion to my size choice!
I don’t want to knit the smaller size and find its too tight, nor the larger size and find its too baggy! My tension swatch (22sts x 28rows over 10cm on 4mm needles) was spot on - what would happen if I knitted the smaller size but on slightly larger needles?
Any opinions would be much appreciated! I am new here and desperate to get started on this project, so must be honest I haven’t looked for any similar threads! I look forward to reading other posts and gleaning some tips… In the meantime, dinner isn’t going to cook itself…
Thanks in advance…
