Converting adult pattern to child size
New member here with a question about downsizing. I have some gorgeous adult sweater patterns (womens) that I would like to re-size for my 6-year-old twin granddaughters. I'm sure it's just a matter of mathematics and proportioning, but I also know that needle size and yarn come into play somehow. Can anyone help? Is there a computerized resizing program out there? Anyone care to write one real quick? ;)

You can try this:

While it probably won't give you an exact translation to your pattern, it can at least give you a good idea of how the math involved works.

Wow! This is an awesome site. With a little patience -- make that "a lot of patience" -- and some peace and quiet, I just might be able to make the conversion.
