The Novice Sweater is knit seamlessly from the top down. That means that you will begin by knitting the neckband, then the yoke, then the body, and finally the sleeves. The sweater is knit in stockinette stitch, while the neckband, bottom edge (waist band), and cuffs are knit in rib.
The Novice Sweater has a round yoke, which is shaped by knitting increases on four rounds evenly separated on the yoke.
You can only rely on the measurements in the pattern if you are able to achieve the correct gauge.
The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL are intended to fit a bust measurement of approximately 85 (90) 95 (100) 110 cm. The Novice Sweater is meant to have a loose fit (positive ease) of 5-10 cm. This means that if your bust circumference is 90 cm (measure yourself with a measuring tape), you should knit a size S that has a bust of 98 cm.
