Wanting to enlarge a sweater pattern?
Last year I struggled with tight tension.
I eventually found the right size needles to accommodate.
Now, my dilema is: I have many, many patterns for fair isle sweaters. All done on circular needles (which I love). My problem is that the sweater sizes go up to a standard 46-48 inch chest.
My aunt has asked me to make one for my cousin who is considerably larger. 56-58" chest.
Changing needles (not an option) would make a larger sweater, however, I would like this sweater to be thicker and warmer.
Does anyone know how I might enlarge an existing pattern?
I am totally at a loss. You know I see lots of people with big fairisle sweaters and often wonder how they get them to fit when the patterns don't exceed an X-large.
