I recently purchased a pattern, then realized that It actually will turn out too small for me. The XL size is for a 42 inch waist and is 65 stitches. I actually have about a 50 inch waist and I don’t know how many stitches to use.
I am becoming more experienced as a knitter and this is the first clothing type thing I am actually making for myself, except for a scarf!
Is there any way to continue to use this pattern but make it larger so it will fit me?
1989 sweater from Knitpicks- These are the beginning instructions
Sizes Small (Med, Lg, XL): Fits waist up to 30” (34”, 38”, 42”)
CO 59 (61, 63, 65) using smaller needles.
Thanks for your input
By the way, I have been a frequent visitor to this site and I do not like the changes, my user name and password were not accepted either- So I had to start all over again!
