This size inclusive design is intended to be worn with 2-3" of negative ease, and includes sizing for finished chest circumferences from 29-61". It features two neckline options if you are concerned about hiding bra straps. It also has a split hem to accommodate wider hips.

(Note: The blanket pictured was knit by Yarns Untangled in Toronto, using a single Crew Box and a single skein of Appalachian Trail. Their stated gauge was 24 stitches over 4" in garter stitch. If you meet this gauge, one of our kits should be sufficient. If your gauge is significantly different, you may need additional yarn to complete the blanket pattern as written.)
