how do you adjust a pattern size?
I am making a fun fur purse for one of my granddaughters and wanted to make a smaller version for her sister. can i just cut the cast on stitches in half and make it half as long or is there a forumla to this? thank you!
here is the link for what I am making but I am also including the knitting instructions.
8 stitches + 12 rows = 4" (10 cm) in stockinette stitch (knit on right side, purl on wrong side) with one strand of each yarn held together. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.
Purse is worked with 1 strand of Wool-Ease Thick & Quick and 1 strand of Fun Fur held together throughout.
With 1 strand of each yarn, cast on 26 stitches. Work in garter stitch (knit every row) for 2 rows. Work in stockinette stitch until piece measures 18" from beginning, ending with a purl row.
Next row (make buttonhole) Knit 12, yarn over, knit 2 together, knit 12. Knit 2 rows. Bind off all stitches.
Fold piece in half and sew side seams.
With 1 strand of each yarn, cast on 40 sts.
Next Row Bind off all stitches.
Attach strap to side seams at top of purse.
Weave in loose ends and sew on button.
