• pattern materials reflect the depicted size. Material usage varies for other sizes.
The smallest size should read for the shape sides…Inc 1 st each end foll 11th rows 4 times NOT 5..the other sizes are correct.
Given the length for the fronts is approx 31.5cm and the tension is 30 rows per 10cm it should easily accommodate 83 sts (smallest size)…picking up 62 sts along that length would tend to make the band pull up (but really it's up to the discretion of the knitter-- some knitters are tighter, some looser so it’s a bit of an average and what works best).
Chest measurements should read 10cm less than stated 1-2 yrs = 56cm
3-4 yrs= 61cm
