1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Children's measurements--Help Please! on: March 07, 2009 09:20:40 PM
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!

i love this! and the life-size fabio in the background makes it even better. Smiley

I randomly saw Fabio in a record store when I was in high school.  He was doing a book signing.  There was a huge crowd of middle-aged women all atwitter, and he suddenly emerged in the middle of the throng.  It was like Rex Manning day!

Gorgeous dress.  It inspires me to start snipping and stitching.

I agree.  The best I've ever seen.  Beautiful job!

Now, where are my hairpins and glasses? I've got to go put my hair up in a bun before sitting down with my knitting and a cup of tea and rest my hip replacement after taking my regular dose of Boniva.  Wink

Ha!  I love it!

What a great idea!
