Size guide: The Cumulus Blouse is designed to have approx. 10-15cm of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be 10-15cm larger in circumference than your widest upper body measurement.
Measure yourself before beginning your project, to determine which size will fit you the best. For example, if you measure 90cm around your bust (or around the widest part of your upper body) you should knit a size S. A size S sweater has a finished bust circumference of 102cm which in the given example would give you 12cm of positive ease.
