Increase patterns sizes

I would like to know how to increase the size of a baby sweater to a 2 year old sweater. Thanks to anybody who can help.:cheering:

That would depend on the sweater and what measurements it caters for.
There are several ways of making ti bigger, the easiest being using a larger yarn and needles than the pattern calls for, although this can effect things like the weight warmth and stiffness of the fabirc.
The second method is to calcualte the guage (how many stitches per inch) the pattern is and then alter the number of stitches you cast on according to how many inches big you want it to be. This can be quite simple or can get more complicated if their is a particular pattern stitch or feature like cabling that needs to be accomodated.

You might try using larger needles and thicker yarn. You can do a top down raglan; the neck would start out about the same number of stitches but you do the increases until it would fit a 2 yo size. Then make it longer as well, with longer sleeves.

I tried the bigger needles and it worked out great, thanks everyone for your help :woot: :woot:
