Resizing a pattern

Hello,

I am currently knitting a hat and realized the biggest size in the pattern is too small. I have read a few articles but I don’t really understand how to change and increase the number of stitches. It’s very confusing and I have never been really good in math. i need some help or an easy way to calculate… The hat is for an adult.

Thanks - julie

hi julie! welcome to KH! first off, do you have a link to the pattern, either on ravelry.com or a knitting, yarn, crafting, etc site? if so, we’ll want that. also, if you’ve deviated from the pattern (different needles, yarn, etc) we’ll need to know that too. cheers, X :slight_smile:

Hey Xtopher,

Here is the link to the pattern: http://www.woollywormhead.com/chunkeanie/

The largest size is 58 but my boyfriend has quite a big head with 62cm.
I have kept the same yarn and needles except that I am not knitting on circular but 4 needles which doesn’t change anything.

Thank you soooo much for your help!

Julie

Try this. http://www.earthguild.com/products/knitcroc/marypat/hatcalc.htm In case you prefer another, here’s my Google search. https://www.google.com/search?q=knitting+hats+size+calculator&gws_rd=ssl

Since you’re not dealing with any complicated patterns I think you can get a cast on number from a chart like the one I linked to. If this doesn’t help or you need more help, just say so. Knitting Help is all about questions getting answers.
