This is a worksheet that helps you to calculate the amount of extra stitches and extra rows you need to cater for your bust size. This is something that isn't often taken into account by the standard sizes used by designers. I often have to add horizontal bust darts using short row shaping to make my knits hang well, without stretching. This worksheet is to be used in conjunction with the tutorial on this subject on The worksheet is NOT a stand alone tutorial.

I have been knitting and crocheting since 2008. I taught myself to crochet out of a book, but got stuck at trying to teach myself how to read knitting patterns. It was all the abbreviations that got me! I joined a course at my local adult education college and fell in love with it. As I fell more in love with knitting I searched for the patterns I had in my head and couldn't find them. So I started writing my own.
