Maybe wait and try it on her again as she grows. They do grow so fast, it may well look just fine, even next year? It's looks beautiful in your picture and the yarn colors are lovely. Really, I'd say a success despite your doubts.

Well it sure is pretty!

I've had issues with children's/toddler's/baby's patterns myself...and it's always sleeves. usually they are long enough to fit a chimpanzee.

I think the baby will wear this little cardigan! It's adorable! Sleeves don't have to fit snugly!

Thanks! The length of the sleeve was a bit of a problem but they could have been rolled up/. It was the width! Cannot believe there wasn't an error in the number to Co but I haven't found any errata on it. I know she won't mind wearing it but I am not sure I want anyone to ask where in the world she got it>

It is really pretty! Don't give up on sweaters, tho. It might just be odd sizing in the pattern.

I love this sweater. It is so beautiful!
Would it work out better for you if you redid the last half of the sleeves again but this time with a k1p1 rib on smaller needles.
The sleeves would still be wide at the top but would possibly narrow down enough so that the child's arm won't get lost in it.
Just a suggestion,

Or you could take the sleeves off altogether and give her a little vest.

I am not sure I am experienced enough to try to figure out how to redo it, especially since it was the first sweater I did but I may give it a try. Thanks for the suggestion.
