The questions I often get bombarded with
I use the european sizing system for babies and children. The size refers to the child’s height in cm. Children do however come in different shapes and some might need a size bigger or smaller width wise compared to length and for that reason I try to include as many measurements as possible with the pattern and always give you the amount of ease incorporated in the pattern so you can make an informed decision when it comes to adjustments. I base my pattern on standard body measurement in order for them to fit most persons without adjustments.
Baby: newborn – 24 months, eur (56, 62, 68, 74, 80, 86, 92)
Child: 3 – 13 years, eur (98, 104, 110, 116, 122, 128, 140, 152, 164)
Will Saffran Cardigan come in adult sizes?
Yes. I plan on releasing Saffran as an adult cardigan next fall, it is a lot of work and it takes time. If you want to keep up with all the new size updates and new patterns the best way to do so is by subscribing to my newsletter, you can find it on the about page.
Skill levels knitting
Advanced beginner: This pattern does not teach you how to knit. It has a simple construction and uses very few techniques to be beginner friendly, it also contains more explanations then a higher level pattern as to walk you through the project even if you don’t have experience of making e.g. sweaters.
Intermediate: This pattern includes a few techniques like cables, colour work or lace but not all of them at once and it walks you through any specialty techniques like a Latvian braid or one row buttonholes but not how you knit stranded colour work.
Advanced: This patterns contains multiple techniques, long repeat lace/colour work pattern or intricate cables, lace worked from both the right and wrong side, steeks and more. They are generally more involved then the intermediate patterns but not necessarily more difficult
