how to determine your size: you can take your favourite knitted sweater, worked in a yarn similar to the one you are considering, and measure its dimensions. It may not have the exact same shape, but it will give you an idea of the size to choose! A sweater in thin wool is often designed a little loose, so it is best to choose a slightly larger than the smaller size, and the biches & bûches designs are actually not intended to be worn tight.
