This is my first post, hopefully youll be able to help!
A friend had a baby prematurely a few months ago and she is now 5 1/2lb. I want to make them some cardigans as a coming home gift but have now way of asking them to measure her chest as it is supposed to be a surprise. I have looked online and it says a 5-6lb baby would be a 12-13 inch chest circumference. My pattern options come with a ‘to fit chest size’ and ‘actual measurement’ - the 3 sizes are…
1)to fit chest 10inch/actual measurement 12inch
2) to fit chest 12inch/actual measurement 14in
3) to fit chest 14inch/actual measurement 16inch
Can anyone advise me which would be best to do? Obviously online it says 12-13inch but would that be chest size or actual measurement?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
