Scaling back a pattern size

I am working on an Alan Dart pattern for a dog. Here’s the deal. I need it to be about 1/2 the size it is. Is there a formula for making things smaller that are 3-d? Is it just like making cookies where you can cut the recipie in 1/2 by dividing everything by 2?

If you need it to be half the size all over, then you can cut everything in half. Then send me some cookies. :lol:

If your gauge is the same as that in the pattern then just reducing by 50% should work. If your gauge is different you’ll have to do some math.

I like chocolate chip.
