Hello! Im new here and was wondering if anyone could answer a question for me. Im an intermediate knitter and I enjoy trying new and challenging patterns once I master whatever im currently working on.
Ive decided to attempt a cardigan. I understand the stitches and the pattern for the most part but it offers different sizes to do the pattern in (small, medium, large, and extra large) normally at the store I would buy a large but I want to make sure this is going to fit me since I will be putting so much work into it
The measurements are at the beginning of the pattern but I dont know how to measure on my body.
The “finished measurements” are
"chest (buttoned): 44(47)([COLOR=“DarkOrange”]50[/COLOR])(53) inches
"length: 24 1/2(25)([COLOR=“darkorange”]25 1/2[/COLOR])(26) inches
If Im attempting the large size itll be the one I highlighted orange. I think I understand how to measure the length, from shoulder to waist but im not sure how to measure the chest. Is it around my bust or above or below it?
If anyone needs to see the pattern its at freepatterns.com just type in Autumn Glow in the search box and itll come right up.
