Measurements are given here for a limited range of sizes.
To calculate ease needed for sizes not given, apply the percentage listed in the first row to the actual body measurements.
For example, to make a loose fitting sweater for a man with a 46 inch chest, add 12-15% (5.5-7 inches)
to the actual chest measurement (for a total sweater measurement of 51.5-53 inches).
