Hello, everyone! . I have a stash of Lopi wool yarn that is just screaming to be felted. So, I want to make a rather large crocheted felted basket for a charity auction at work. I have a pattern for a smaller sized container, but I want to upsize it by about 33%. How do I adjust the pattern?
The engineer in me says to just make the pre-felted object proportionately larger based on the pre- and post-felted dimensions in the pattern and my desired post-felted enlargement. But the knitter/crocheter/quilter says it might not be that straight forward? Any caveats that I’m not thinking about that you would suggest I consider? Will my approach work? Is there a source anyone might recommend for how to modify felting projects from existing patterns? Preferably for crochet, but at this point any help will be very much appreciated.
