How to make a pattern smaller

Hi , I’m knitting a dog jumper but the dog is smaller than the pattern, how do I make the length shorter?

Hi and welcome! It would help to know what pattern you’re using. You can post a link to it or tell us the name and designer’s name so we can find it.

Thanks for replying, this is the pattern.


Welcome to the forum!
If you only need to shorten the length along the back you could do that after Row 8. There’s a repeat of rows 7&8 until the coat measures 7 inches. You would repeat rows 7&8 until whatever measurement you need.
