In this video I give you some pointers on choosing the correct sweater size in a pattern. Since patterns are written differently, these are sure-fire ways to get it right. I also talk about how to fit a sweater when your largest measurement is not chest/bust, but hips or belly.
This website will show you how to accurately measure for a sweater.
The shawl on the mannequin is my Learn to Knit an Aran Shawl, pattern + video tutorial.
The website I recommend in the video is Ravelry.
