Sizing Charts

These are some general measurement charts I’ve gotten from various sites and books.  These are just averages to use as a guide.  Every person is different and may not fall in these averages.

Also, please remember fibers can stretch out.  For example, you will want to knit smaller than these measurements if you have ribbing because ribbing stretches quite a bit.
