The final measurements of the garment at the chest circumference in cm: 90 (100, 110, 120) (130, 140, 150) cm approx, to be worn with a positive ease of approx 10 cm.
The model in the photograph is wearing size 2 with 10 cm ease.

- 3.5 mm circular needles with 60 or 80 cm cable, or the adequate thickness to obtain the sample tension.
- Circular needles of 3 mm with 60 cm cable, or half a mm finer than the ones we are going to knit the garment with, to pick up the collar stitches and knit the finishing.
- 3.5 mm needles or the same thickness with which you knitted the garment to knit small circle (special short cable, five needles or magic loop needles) for the sleeves.
- Needles of 3 mm or half a stitch smaller than the ones used to knit the garment (special short cable needles, five needles or magic loop needles) to pick up the sleeve stitches.
- Auxiliary needle to make the crosses (optional).
A plain stitch:
24 stitches and 32 rows = 10 x 10 cm before blocking.
23 stitches and 32 rows = 10 x 10 cm after blocking.
25 stitches and 34 passes = 10 x 10 cm before blocking.
24 stitches and 34 rows = 10 x 10 cm after blocking.
It’s recommended that note down the measurements of the sample before and after blocking, so that we can estimate the final measurements of the garment.
