Cropped Irish Aran sweater, with unlimited sizes, starting from 32 inch bust. 

The hem and lower body are knitted in the round first, with the cable pattern on the front and plain back, then the upper front and back are worked one at a time and grafted together at the shoulder and that’s the only seaming this sweater has. The collar is made by picking up stitches at the head opening and working k2- p2 rib for a while. Stitches for the sleeves are picked up from the armhole and sleeves are knitted towards the cuffs.
This boxy sweater is very easy, even for beginners. There’s no shaping what-so-ever. You are welcome to shape it as you wish according to your own measurements if you have the know-how, but it is not intended to have shaping.
Iiris has unlimited sizes, starting from 32 inch bust. Smaller than that the cables won’t work. But you can go as big as you need! No size restrictions! Longer sleeves, fine! Taller body, no problem!

You can also make the sweater as long as you want /need, no restrictions!

And that’s why this pattern is a bit pricier than regular restricted sized sweaters.
