Choose What You Pay: A “Choose What You Pay” model is available for this pattern, allowing both financial accessibility and fair pricing. The buyer may pay what they are able while still valuing the hard work invested by myself, my testers, the tech editor, and other designers. The price listed reflects what I believe is fair for the work put into this design. Use the codes below in order to pay the price listed after each. Choose whichever price works best for you!
To determine your size, measure your chest around the widest point, then locate the closest value listed under “Sweater Bust” below. This pattern does not have added ease. If you would like to add ease (i.e., extra material for a roomier fit), size up. If you would like negative ease (i.e., less material for a closer fit), size down.
