The Louvre Sweater is worked from the top down with raglan increases on the yoke. Short rows are worked after the neck rib edge to shape the neckline.
Size Guide: The Louvre Sweater is designed to have approx. 20cm of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be 20cm larger in circumference than your bust measurement.
Before beginning your project, measure yourself to determine which size to knit. For example, if you measure 92cm around your bust (or around the widest part of your upper body) you should knit a size M. A size M sweater has a bust circumference of 114cm which in the given example would give you 22cm of positive ease.
