The ladies of Kelbourne Woolens have partnered with designer Jacqueline Cieslak for a spring KAL for her Rift sweater, which was featured in our Spring lookbook! You can cast on virtually with them on Friday, May 22 via IG live!
Rift is designed for a finished bust measurement of 40 (44, 48, 52, 56, 60, 64, 68, 72) inches. To choose your size, measure the circumference around the fullest part of your bust, then add 6-12” (depending on how much ease you want) and choose the closest size. Please see schematic for more detailed finished measurements.
