Hi everyone,

I am embarking on my first sweater for myself: the Cowl from Cowl and Howl.

I noticed some discussion about the pattern in this forum. This is my dilemma: I have a 43" bust. The finished XL says that it is 37.5". I know it stretches, but I wondered how much it stretched for people. I will adjust the pattern to an XXL (although it behooves me to refer to myself as an XXL) if necessary.

I don't know exactly the amount that you will need to adjust, but I would look at the other sizes and see if the increases are done on a common number (such as four stitches or eight) and see what the difference is between the sizes. My main concern with stretching is that it rarely does evenly . . . and I know what you are saying about the XXL since my chest size rarely makes it on the page  Undecided.

Thanks!

I figured that I would need to cast on an extra three stitches (it seems to be the differential between the other sizes) so I am going to do it, in my bust size.

I will post the results. I just did a Hot Head beenie for a colleague at work and he loves it, BTW. It was sooooo easy and quick. Plus, working with Lamb's Pride Bulky is a dream.
