Hi guys!  Long time no post!

I work for a sweater company, and have tons of old sweaters (acrylic mostly) that I want to make into baby sweaters for my 2 year old nephew.  I can't find anything online though!  The best I could find was 'take a baby sweater and use as a pattern' but I don't have one!  Does anyone know of a good tutorial or pattern online for a baby/toddler jacket or sweater?

I would go out and buy something but I'm cheap and can't leave my apartment on the train (thanks, Sandy! Angry )

I found a measurement chart for toddlers! If your nephew is average, he will be close to a 21 inch chest. Ask his mother or father to measure him just to be sure. Then you can use this tutorial as a basic guide for making your pattern pieces. Just make sure you add about 2 inches for wearing ease because he'll wear it over other clothes. That means pretend he has a 23 inch chest, and then add seam allowances. It's getting the shape of each piece right that will be important.

To summarize, the back piece will be half his chest+ease measurement wide plus the seam allowances, and each half of the front will be one quarter chest+ease measurement wide plus seam allowances.

were you looking to cut and sew together in a smaller size?
