If you are making this for a bigger child would your just make more rounds before you do the sleeves. I really like the look of the hood on the baby but it would probably not look that big on my two year old daughter, so I was thinking of doing a few more rounds maybe ten before doing the sleeves and then carrying on. What do you think, would it work.
Yes, that's exactly how you do it for the adult sweater or an older child. Knit until the diameter of the circle is the same as the measurement from shoulder to shoulder, then the sleeves begin.
