Lovely pattern apart from the sizing stopping at 37 inches.

Thank you for the feedback, the sizing is clearly described on the product page before you purchase. The pattern was designed as a child/young adult pattern which is why it stops at 37".

I have been looking for a pattern for a gansey which will be easy to knit on the go. I hope this one will be perfect and will look forward to starting it.
