how to determine your size : you can take your favorite knitted vest, worked in a yarn similar to the one you are considering, and measure its dimensions. it may not have the exact same shape, but it will give you an idea of the size to choose ! a vest in thin wool is often designed a little loose, so it is best to choose a slightly larger than smaller size, and the designs in biches & bûches yarns are most often not intended to be worn tight <3
