For those of you looking for a larger size range, here's a tip! Worked at a gauge of 17 sts/27 rows to 4 inches, the sizing will expand to 38 (42, 43.2, 45, 46, 47) inches. Keep in mind that as you are knitting laceweight yarn at an extremely loose gauge, the resulting fabric for both of these gauges will be very stretchy and will expand when worn. Also, the weight of the sleeves pulls the fabric downards off the shoulder, creating the drop sleeve effect seen here on the model and helping to achieve a perfect fit.
