I'm going to knit the Ruffled Surplice from the current issue of Interweave. Photo here: http://flickr.com/photos/knitchick2/425904129/
The smallest size is for a 33.5" chest, and the next size up is for a 37.5" chest. I'm a bit small-chested, so my chest size falls right in between those two measurements, but I'm afraid the rest of me would look better in the larger size. (I usually take a medium in store-bought clothes, if that helps.) Or is this the kind of pattern that would look better with some negative ease? I'm using a cotton blend yarn for this pattern, so it won't have much stretch, but might loosen up over time. And it's a wrap sweater, which would probably allow some room for error, but I'm not sure which side to err on!
My apologies if that was too much information,
but if anyone has thoughts or suggestions, I'd really appreciate it!
