How are crochet cardigans measured?
Deciding on measurements
- Bust circumference (measured under the armholes over the biggest point of your breasts)
- Bust height (from shoulder to nipple, this is very useful if you want to make a fitted model, since you know where the biggest part of the bust is)
- Waist circumference (if you plan on making a fitted sweater)
How do you size a crochet sweater pattern?

How do you size a crochet pattern down?
As single crochet stitches are square, in theory you can double the size of an amigurumi pattern without changing the yarn or hook by doubling both the number of stitches in each round and the number of rounds, so each stitch of the pattern is turned into a 2×2 square of stitches (2 stitches wide and 2 rounds tall).
