The Classic Alpaca Sweater is a minimalistic, oversized design that will perfectly complete any of your outfits. This sweater has a lowered shoulder line. It’s knit with premium yarn; a mix of alpaca, cotton, and merino.
This sweater is designed to be knitted top-down, partially in the round and flat, using a half fisherman’s rib stitch.
The Classic Alpaca Sweater is designed to have approx. 28 cm [11 inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be 28 cm [11 inches] larger in circumference than your bust measurement.
Available sizes: S ( M ) L
Sizes S ( M ) L are designed to fit an approx. bust circumference of 80-88 (88-96) 96-104 cm [ 31-35 (35-38) 38-41 in ]
Before beginning your project, measure yourself to determine which size will fit you the best. For example, if you measure 90 cm [35½ inches] around your bust (or around the widest part on your upper body) you should knit a size M. A size M sweater has a bust circumference of 124 cm [39.5 inches] which in the given example would give you 34 cm [13.5 inches] of positive ease.
