Size guide


The sweater should be knitted with a positive ease of approx. 35-50 cm, depending on your taste. If an extreme oversize look is desired, 45-50 cm must be added to the real bust circumference. The result corresponds to the size to be selected (e.g. bust circumference 85 cm + 45 cm positive ease = 130 cm, which corresponds to a size S).

If you want the sweater to be loose but not too oversized, you need to add 35-40 cm to the chest circumference (e.g. bust circumference 95 cm + 35 cm positive ease = 130 cm, which also corresponds to a size S).
