I'm making this sweater for a 4 1/2 year old, so I'm aiming for a size 5.
The pattern is for a cropped cardi with a 3/4 length sleeve. I want it all to be full length. I have a standard measurement list, which indicates an 11" sleeve length measurement to under arm. That is easy enough. But there's no standard measurement listed for hem to underarm.
The cardi knits bottom-up, and I'm at the point where I need to bind off for arm holes. I'm at about 9" from the bottom hem. Would that fit a 5-year-old from hip to sleeve hole/underarm? Or does it seem long? Anybody out there have a size 5 kiddo who has measurable clothes? Your help is much appreciated. Thanks!
