question about antropologie-inspired capelet
Okay, I am thinking of making this and have the yarn all picked out. My question is this:

The girl who made it and everyone else I find with pictures is very small/skinny. I am about a size 14. How do I make sure this fits me???

Any advice?

Keep increasing until it fits.... After knitting about 9-10", put it on waste yarn and see if the sleeve section meets at your underam without being too tight. If it does, finish up; if not, do a couple more increase round. Another way to check is to measure the back section, it should be about 1/2 your chest size.

also check the other anthropogie related threads here and craftster- some ladies cast on more stitches for the neckline to be larger, then distributed them out between each section.
