Size guide

The Eva Cardigan Junior is designed to have approx. 18-24 cm [7-9½ inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be approx. 18-24 cm [7-9½ inches] larger in circumference than the chest measurement. The sizes 1-2 (2-3) 3-4 (4-5) 5-6 (6-7) 7-8 (8-9) 9-10 (10-11) 11-12 (12-13) 13-14 years are designed to fit a chest circumference of approx. 53 (54) 56 (57) 59 (62) 64 (68) 72 (75) 78 (80) 82 cm [20¾ (21¼) 22 (22¾) 23½ (24¼) 25 (26¾) 28¼ (29¾) 30½ (31½) 32¼ inches]. The measurements for the finished garment are listed on the front page of the pattern (please note that these measurements are only achieved if the cardigan is knitted in the correct gauge). If you/the recipient measures 57 cm [24½ inches] around the chest, you should knit a size 4-5 years. Size 4-5 years has a chest circumference of 79 cm [31 inches] which will, in this example, give 22 cm [7½ inches] of positive ease.

If the measured chest circumference deviates from the age guide, you can adjust the lengths to the person you’re knitting for. The same applies if the child is short/taller than average.
