Just a word of caution with the Knitting Fool generator. I used this for a baby sweater and it turned out a bit large even with the snug size. They might take into account wearing ease. You can start out with this pattern and take measurements as you go. This would be from seam to seam across the back. Multiply it by two for total chest measurement. If it might be large, eliminate one or two of the last increase sets the pattern calls for and knit it straight after that. The illustration showing the percentages was a great help. You could try making a baby or doll sweater to see how this turns out before you do a large project with good yarn, if you've never done top down sweaters before.
