The Chantal sweater is worked from the top down in slip stitch. First, the left and right shoulders are worked separately. Then, stitches are picked up to work the right and left fronts, shaping the neckline with increases, after which they are joined with additional stitches picked up for the neckline to knit the front straight down to the armholes. After that, stitches are picked up to work the back. German Short Rows are used on both the front and back to ensure a comfortable fit at the shoulders. Once all the parts are completed, they are joined for knitting in the round. Next, stitches are picked up to work the neckline in a 2x2 rib, worked in the round, which is then folded and attached to the wrong side. Finally, the stitches are picked up to work the sleeves in the round.

Sizes:

XS / S / M / L / XL / 2XL / 3XL
The Chantal Sweater has a relaxed fit and is designed to have approx. 15 cm [6 in] of positive ease with slightly reduced ease in larger sizes, to ensure a more comfortable fit. This means the garment's measurements will be approx. 15 cm [6 in] larger than your actual bust circumference.

The sizes XS / S / M / L / XL / 2XL / 3XL are designed to fit a bust circumference of 80-85 / 85-90 / 90-95 / 95-100 / 100-110 /110-120 / 120-130 cm [31½-33½ / 33½-35½ / 35½-37½ / 37½-39½ / 39½-43¼ / 43¼-47¼ / 47¼-51¼ in].

Before you begin, measure yourself to determine the right size. For example, if your bust circumference is 90 cm [35 in], you should knit a size M. If you are between sizes, choose the size based on how loose you prefer the sweater to fit. Using the diagram with the finished garment measurements can be a helpful reference when deciding which size to select.
