The pattern includes both written and charted instructions and the bust circumference is generously sized from 34 ( 38, 42, 46, 50, 54, 58). Meant to be worn with 2 inches of positive ease the front has short rows to accomodate the bust and a tie at the empire waist to create a perfect fit everytime.
Since the Crespo hasn't even been released yet you might find yourself substituting yarn. Be aware that if you use a heavy cotton for this garment it will drop farther after blocking and the lace pattern will behave differently. If you don't want to wait for the Crespo I suggest a linen, or hemp blend for this garment.
As always you can purchase this pattern through Ravelry whether you have an account or not, the price is $7.50 for the PDF download.
