Need help with choosing size of sweater
I am thinking about making the Fair Isle U-Neck Pullover seen on page 74 of Vogue Knitting from Fall 2006. My problem is that it is described as very close-fitting, and my body measurements don't go with just one size. My bust size falls between the medium and large size of the pattern, and my waist size is a little smaller than size small. (my body shape is hourglass) I have chosen larger sizes before and always hated that the finished item looked a little baggy around my waist. This sweater should be close fitting and has bands of fair isle in it (as shown on the model). So what size do I chose?
Also, it is in Dale of Norway "Heilo", but I was thinking of using KnitPicks "Telemark" (which is about $4 cheaper per ball). Do you think that will work well?
Thank you for your help.
