depends how big around she is! I'm using the 24, for the second one for my 5 year old. (did the first on straights)..... measure her around her chest at the armpit to see what chest measruement she is. you can always squish more stitches on the smaller cable, but you can't make a garment smaller than the cable you are using. (did that make any sense? I need some afternoon coffee or something...)

I made 3 of them a 2, a 4, and one size in between all in the round, all on 16"ers. The ruffle part however was done on 24" until I came to the k2 tog, then I knit it off onto 16".

How do you translate the top shaping into the round? I was thinking it could be done but didn't know exactly how.

The way I did it was after I decided on size, I subtracted 4 sts from the total. (were for seams) On the ruffle, instead of the p2,and p2 tog's I just took the total # of sts on the body and doubled it, knit for 2.5" and did k2 tog all the way around.

Hope that was clear. :shrug:
