I’m designing a knitting pattern for a baby sweater. I want it to be for a range of sizes (3m - 24m probably). Obviously I don’t currently have a child in each size to measure or try things on. My youngest is 2.5yo. I’ve been working from this chart:
But then I suddenly wondered… are these measurements supposed to be for the average child, or for the finished garment (with ease included)? I was assuming they were for the kid, because how much ease you want varies depending on the pattern, but now that I’ve finished the first sweater based on that assumption it looks rather big for a 3mo size so I’m second guessing. I also ran into trouble because that chart doesn’t include any measurements for the neck opening, so I found myself guessing and eyeballing it (erf).
Anyone have a better resource I can use?
