How much to by for a toddler size 3 sweater? I don't have a pattern yet, just found the yarn on sale and am wondering how much to buy.

Weight: Chunky
Needle: US10 / 6mm
Gauge: 3-3.5 sts

http://www.fabulousyarn.com/PATTERNS/blankie_rollneckpattern.htm this might help you.

You might also try just looking up patterns with that weight yarn in it. Is it a commercial brand, like Lion Brand? If so, there's patterns on their website.

I did a google search of "chunky sweater toddler knit pattern." If it is a very specifically bulky yarn, you might have to just see about patterns that contain a very bulky yarn.

Hey, silver, where do you find such a conversion chart? I'd love to have one handy.
