FAQs

Q How much ease should I account for?

A Chambourcin will fit best when worn with slight negative ease. The modeled garment is shown with 1″ of negative ease. This will create the opening of the bust’s v-neck

Q Can I knit it in the round

A Sure – just CO for the whole back and front at once, join carefully to avoid twisting and use markers for the front and back
