The Daily Sweater

I really like the look of the Daily Sweater in Mason-Dixon Knitting Outside the Lines, but according to the Ravelry page for this pattern (requires login), extra-small is for a 38 inch bust.

I just don't live in a universe where a 38" bust is extra-small. In my universe, where I buy all my clothes, extra-small ranges from about 32" to 35" and anyone with a 38" bust would be shopping several racks away from extra-small.

So although the sweater looks really cute, the pattern was apparently written to be made in a universe far, far away from the one in which I live.

I want to comment I really do. uhm.... let's see In my knitting group 38" bust wouldn't be extra small but it would be small. Those knitters are going to kill me.

It's good to hear that the pattern will fit someone, somewhere, because it's such a classic sweater.

I'll just start calling the place I live "Lilliput.":)
