I have a pattern that is only available up to a 36" bust - now this is all well and good but unfortunately for me I’m rather more errm endowed than that.
What I’d like to know is, how do I convert this to fit my size and any idea how much extra yarn I’d need?
I think what I need to do is this:
Tension says 8 stitches per inch - so would I extend the number of cast on stitches to match that - for instance lets say it says cast on 288 stitches for the 36" one do I instead cast on 368 stitches for a 46" one…
My other question then is how do I deal with the casting off in relation to armholes etc?
Gah! So many questions this raises… is there a simple guide anywhere that I could read on how to resize patterns to fit those of us who aren’t a pert size 36" bust?!!
