the width is generous, we suggest knitting small for up to six month, medium for up to one year and large for up to two years. The kaftan is quite a 'box' or square shape, increase the length of the back and the fronts to make a longer jacket. ADD another ball of the colour from our wool shop. However, you will have enough in the kit to add a couple of inches of length.
