Wanting to try sweater, not sure how to measure for sizing

I am thinking about attempting my first sweater. I am slightly confused as to how to measure for the sweater though. I want to make sure it is going to fit after its done.

How do you measure yourself to determine sweater sizing? The pattern has finished sizes listed in inches. How do you know which one to use?

Please help me I am confused! :?? :oops:


Rather than measure yourself, measure a sweater that fits you well and compare those measurements against the finished measurements of the pattern.

That sounds easy enough, I will try this.

Thanks a bunch!
