The pretty Jenny Sweater is worked in the round from the bottom up with raglan decreases on the yoke. Body and sleeves are worked separately to the armholes and then joined on the circular needle for the yoke. The neckline is shaped by working back and forth on the needles, while binding off stitches. The neckline ribbing is knitted at the end from stitches that are picked up.

Size guide: The Jenny Sweater is designed to have approx. 19 cm [7½ inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be approx. 19 cm [7½ inches] larger in circumference than your bust measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) are designed to fit a bust circumference of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) 120-130 (130-140) cm [30½-33½ (33½-35½) 35½-37½ (37½-39½) 39½-43¼ (43¼-47¼) 47¼-51¼ (51¼-55) inches].
For example, if you measure 90 cm [35½ inches] around your bust (or around the widest part on your upper body) you should knit a size S. A size S sweater has a bust circumference of 109 cm [43 inches] which in the given example would give you 19 cm [7½ inches] of positive ease. If you are between two sizes, I recommend choosing the smaller size, as the smock pattern will stretch slightly with wear.
