Check the schematic first to see what the final measurements are. I find that older patterns sometimes allow for more ease and a small size's measurements match the measurements of my favorite sweater.

Thank you all. This pattern doesn't give a final measurement. I think I will go by my favorite sweater measurement. I can say the designer didn't waste words in this pattern it's straight and to the point. donna
You're probably not using the yarn specified for the pattern, so you can always go with thicker yarn and lesser gauge, as long as you know what the gauge is. I'm pretty sure the pattern would tell you that! Knit a swatch and block it to see what happens.

I haven't pick a yarn yet, it calls for Brunswick fore'n or Pomfret sport yarn. Circular knitting needles 3 and 6. 5 1/2 sts and 7 rows per inch. The yarn wasn't my problem I just didn't know what I should do to fix the size.
