Did you find the sweater knitted up true to size or did you knit a larger size? I, too, have fitting issues when I knit. I am waiting for my yarn to arrive in the mail. I want a looser fit, so was wondering if I need to size up one or two sizes. Would love your input. Thanks.

In this case I found that you can really trust the chart that Ragga included with the pattern. I knit the size 36" and she shows this with a finished measurement of 37 1/2" on her chart and that's exactly what I got. Most patterns don't give you both the bust measurement and the finished one so that you have to guess at the ease that you want.

Thank you for your response. It really helped me determine the size. I hope my sweater turns out half as pretty as yours. :)

I should have mentioned that I did not get that extra 11/2 inch till after I blocked. Can't wait to see yours.
