NOTES

a) Measurements of children in the same age may differ a lot, therefore before deciding which size to knit, take time to measure your child and perhaps some garment that fits like you’d wish this cardigan would fit. Compare these measurements to the measurements given on the last page.
b) Note that Manti is designed to be close-fitting.
c) The body length is calculated so that after working yoke decreases, 3 (3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4) repeats of big cable (Chart 1A or 1B) are completed. Therefore if you wish to lengthen body, then extend the bottom ribbing or add one repeat of big cable to the body length.
d) In sizes 6, 8 and 10, 4 repeats of Chart 1 are worked, so the fit is a bit longer than other sizes.
