Amazing,I love the design! It looks modern, up to date, I think classical designs never go out of style, so thank you so much for sharing it again!

I was wondering if there is somewhere to see measurements with the sizes so you know which pattern part and how much yarn you will need for this project? Simply "S M L" doesn't say much. Thank you!

I was hoping this was a knitted-from-the-top sweater. I've made a few years ago. Only seem is about two-three inches under the arm.

The top-down piece would not produce these flattering vertical stripes. They are worth the trouble. The only thing I regret is not giving us the measurements (say, row x: knit 3 inches, wrap, turn). If I don't use this particular yarn with this particular gauge, I'm lost).
