One thought on “Twelve Cables Pullover

  1. Bust size question

    I am getting set to purchase yarn to make this gorgeous pattern (not the recommended yarn the model is wearing). I am confused by the bust measurement. The “Finished Sizes” in the instructions do not correspond with the schematic.

    For example, the Finished Size 32: the schematic lists 18.5″ as the width of the pullover. The difference between 32″ and 37″ is 5″ in the circumference.

    Which is correct – the FInished Sizes listed or the schematic?

    Help please and thanks!
