Virtual Ursina Sweater Class with Mary Jane



URSINA is a classic sweater with simple construction and unique detailing. A rework of Jacqueline's URSA sweater pattern, which was designed for bulky weight yarn in 9 sizes, this new pattern has been graded for both sport and worsted weight in 12 sizes. The sweater is constructed from the top-down with raglan shaping for the sleeves, optional horizontal bust darts in 6 cup sizes, and instructions and yardage details for cropped or full length. Like the original pattern, URSINA includes directions to try it on as you work and notations to help you tweak the size according to your preference.

SIZING

All of Jacqueline's garment patterns are #sizeinclusive up to at least a 60” full bust circumference.

To choose your size, measure the circumference of your torso around the fullest part of your chest and choose the size that fits with 2-6” of positive ease. If you are between sizes, you can size up or down depending on whether you want more or less ease in the bicep.
