How to downsize a pttern ?
I am going to knit my oldest son a sweater for Christmas but the pattern he choose doesn't have a size small enough to fit him. He would wear an Extra small if that was possible. The pattern I am asking how to downsize is a pdf file from Vogue Knitting.com website. It is the Mens Cabled Crewneck. By deducting the next largest size from the largest size and so on down to the small deducted from the medium size, the difference between sizes is 8 stitches. In the steps for the neck shaping could I deduct one stitch from the smallest size directions and so on for every shaping instructions to get an extra small size?
