Free sizing spreadsheet (x-posted to a_twistedstitch)

I'm sharing a basic spreadsheet that I've put together. It incorporates body measurements with gauge and ease in order to give you stitch/row counts for your sizes. It can be used for knit or crochet.

It isn't an exact replica of the one I use, but it has all of the dimensions as listed on the Yarn Standards website (sizing for Women).

In the upper-left corner, one can enter the ease & gauge and the rest of the spreadsheet will auto-populate.

These measurements are whole measurements, and do not take into account the shape of the neckline, or the type of sleeve, but they are the industry standard starting point. A few things for anyone who wants to use this spreadsheet:

1. The file itself is in MS-Office Excel format. That is the only format I am providing, but if other people want to convert it and share it with others - feel free.
2. The file has no copyright attached - use/copy/share/alter as desired. I don't even require credit, but it would be nice.
3. I am not offering *any* tech support either for the use of the information, or the use of MS-Excel spreadsheets, or the rationale behind my formulas (it's really straightforward stuff).
