  • Hello! I am getting ready to start your beautiful pattern for the Men’s Striped Vest from Blue Sky Alpaca. I could use more info to chose a size for my hubby. Under size, the pattern says S, M, L, XL, and XLL fits chest 34, 38, 42, 46, 50″ respectively. My question is are these measurements finished size, or chest measurement? Thanks in advance! Can’t wait to start!
