Vest/shrug shown in picture is size 32" - 36". This is a very easy knit, very quick and impressive when finished. Malabrigo's Rios is fabulous - soft, sumptuous, glorious colors (Archangel is the color shown).
This will fit a woman's chest measurement of 32" to 48" and uses 3 - 5 skeins of Rios.
The only sewing is a few inches on each side below the armholes. Collar is knitted with back - no stitches to pick up! Easy enough for a beginner with a farrow rib on the back and a simple rib for the shoulders and collar.
