Finished Measurements - Childs Size 6
by Hobbie's House of Wizard Wear
We happen to be drafting a knitting pattern for a "character" sweater in a Child's size 6.
This sweater has an average fit...not too loose but not close fitting either. This one is meant to be layered over a turtleneck and perfect for a chilly trick or treat adventure.
The finished measurements can include as much wearing ease as you care to add to the child's actual measurements. The average is 2 to 2 1/2 inches added to the "actual measurements".
So...if the child has an actual chest measurement of 25 inches, then the finished sweater piece should measure 27 to 27 1/2 inches across at the widest point.
We like to add generous wearing ease for children's sweaters - a little more than average. Call it growing room. Standard "actual" measurements for a size 6 are as follows with finished chest measurement in brackets:
- Chest = 25 inches (29")
- Arm Length = 16 1/4 inches
- Shoulder width =10 3/4 inches
- Length = 16 3/4 inches
