I am currently working on Oblique from Knitty (http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall07/PATToblique.html) and am curious about pattern sizing. It gives the size and finished measurements as follows:
[SIZE=2][COLOR=DarkRed]SIZE[/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=2][COLOR=DarkRed]XS[S, M, L, 1X, 2X, 3X] (shown in size S)[/COLOR][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2][/SIZE] [SIZE=2][COLOR=DarkRed]FINISHED MEASUREMENTS [/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=2][COLOR=DarkRed]Chest: 35.5[39, 43, 46.5, 50.5, 54, 58] inches
Length: 25[26.25, 27.25, 28.25, 29.25, 30.5, 31.5] inches[/COLOR][/SIZE]
So I measured my chest and it is 45.5 inches so I thought ok, I’ll make the L since according to the finished measurements it is 46.5. Ok…well if I were to buy a sweater in the store, I would buy a 1X in plus size so then should I be working on the 1X size? This is only my 2nd sweater…the first one was meant to be fitted and this one isn’t. Any advice would be super greatly appreciated!!!
