Hanstholm Sweater is knitted from top to bottom with raglan increases. Shortened rounds are knitted along the elastic edge of the neck to shape the neckline.
Hanstholm Sweater should have a range of motion (positive ease) of approx. 6-13 cm in relation to the recipient's bust measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) correspond to a bust measurement, measured on the recipient's body, of 86-91 (91-96) 96-101 (101-107) 107-113 (113-119) ) 119-124 (124-132) cm. The measurements of the finished sweater are given on the front of the pattern. Measure the receiver, before you start knitting, to determine which size will fit best. If he e.g. measures 103 cm around the chest (or the widest part of the body), you should knit a size L. A sweater in size L has an overall width of 115 cm and in the mentioned example will give a range of movement (positive ease) of 12 cm.
