Cardigan Measurement Chart
This is a Cardigan Measurement Chart that is helpful for creating a crochet cardigan for baby 3 months to 24 months.
When deciding to create a crochet cardigan you’ll need to determine the size based on the child’s age or actual measurements. If using measurements as a guide, you’ll need to measure the chest, cross the back (shoulder to shoulder) arm length, and neck to wrist.
