I have knitted several of them over the years and they work out very nicely - ribbons help with some of the plainer ones. Length is sometimes given but not chest measurement as the style give freedom of sizing. Mostly knitted in vintage 3ply, so try modern 4ply in a tension square. This one is is easy to make longer or shorter, but states 16 inches, and will probably fit 18-20 inch chest. Nice easy diamond border, which can be worked up to the waist ties if wanted. Very sweet with the little buttons at the shoulders.
