Depends a lot on the pattern stitch, as well as the differential between the given sizes.
Another thought would be to find a very basic toddler pattern with about the same size needles and yarn weight - then adapt that to your little precious one.
Thanks for the input..problem is I can not (for the life of me) find a basic long sleeved "shrug"(short length) no button front, one needle pattern,so I am trying to adapt this one: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/60806A.html
to fit. She is a very petite 6 year old with small dimensions
so I upped the needle to 10....
