Hi everyone. I really want to knit a sweater from the Winter 2008 Interweave Knits. It is the Victoria Yoke Pullover on page 86 (here). I have a couple of questions about this.
The first is that the largest size for it is 44 1/4. My bust measures
44 1/2 - 45. Would it be possible for me to make this sweater to fit me.
Which brings me to ease. I understand that you add for a more comfortable sweater. Does that mean that I would add 2 to 45 making me need a 47?
I would consider myself and advanced beginner or maybe intermediate so I’m not real sure how to make changes here. Could I just use a different yarn and go for a larger gauge and follow the directions for the largest sweater? Also this will be my first sweater.
I would really appreciate any advise. I really love this sweater and would like to give it a try if possible. Or should I just move on to a different pattern?
