Boxy sweaters are like a friend who loves us dearly: always makes us feel comfortable and beautiful. They suit all body shapes and can be dressed up or down.

I feel you can wear a boxy sweater with any outfit you like. In this version, delicate bands of lace alternate with bands of silky fabric that subtly change colors.

SIZES
1 (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10). To fit bust circumference 30 (34, 38, 42, 46, 50, 54, 58, 62, 66)“ 75/80 (85, 95, 105, 115, 125, 135, 145/150, 155/160, 165/170) cm. Shown in size 3 on a 36” bust.

This sweater has a lot of positive ease built in. This means that the finished product will be much bigger than your bust measurement. However, not all the sizes have the same amount of ease built in, as larger sizes don’t need the sweater to be so oversized.
Choose a size according to your bust measurement in the list of sizes above: if your bust circumference is 40” 100 cm, choose size 4.
