    Construction notes
    The lace pattern is charted only. The length is measured at the centre-back, not including the neckband. Selecting your size Efeu sweater has a short and loose fit. The sweater is worked from the top down, so it is easy to adjust the length.
    When choosing your size, measure yourself with a measuring tape around your bust or the widest part of your upper body to determine which size will fit you the best. Choose the size with a circumference of 16-24 cm (6-9 inches) larger than your widest measurement, which will would give you 16-24 cm (6-9 inches) of positive ease. Choose a size smaller if you prefer a more fitted garment.
