The sizing on the Vibe sweater is just a little different from the standard sizing for Small, Medium, Large, and Extra-Large. The size Small has a bust size that runs a little bigger than what we would normally call a small (at 45"), but the armhole is relatively short, and the body length is short. The medium keeps the same bust size (45"), but elongates the armhole depth and the body length. The Large and Extra-Large are sized up normally.
This sizing means the Small size sweater has more ease at the bust-line than the Medium size. However, since brioche is very elastic, the Medium size will still fit nicely over the bust-line. It has the added benefit that it allows the knitter who falls in the Small/Medium size range to easily customize their sweater. Taller knitters or those with longer torsos can choose to knit the Medium, and knitters who are shorter through the torso can choose the size Small version. One can mix and match to fit your personal measurements! Knitters who prefer more ease at the bust-line should choose a larger size. The drape of this design will mean a larger size will still be flattering.
