The pattern is made so that the work must be washed after it is completed. However, if you are nervous that the work will change too much in size during washing, you can choose to go one size down for an even tighter fit.
My AuroraSweater in the picture above is knitted in a size small and my measurements are 90 cm over the chest and 76 cm around the waist.
200 (200) 200 (200) 250 g Drops Baby Merino (50 g = 175 m) if the sweater is knitted in only one color. If you want to add another color to the edges, use an additional 50 g = 1 ball.
Baby merino is superwash-treated yarn, which i.a. means that the yarn is very elastic, especially during washing. It is therefore important that the yarn is washed carefully so that the work does not stretch out of shape, watch, and follow this video (turn subtitles on and in the settings there’s a button which allows you to automatically translate my subtitles to your own language): https://youtu.be/bM8GcwObEW4
