Hello, I am struggling with the idea of how to go about adjusting a pattern for different sizes. I was actaully working on the baby Kimono pattern from Mason Dixon and I thought I would try and increase the size by increasing all of the stitch amounts by 25%. It was working fine until I got to the neck edge and then it became all lopsided with one sleeve being way longer than the other on either side of the neck. I tried to re-do the math to see where I went wrong but it just doesn't work right. The neck is way to small and the sleeves to long. I got so frustrated trying to un-knit back to the neck edge and then cast off more stitches so the neck would be bigger. I dropped a ton of stiches. Anyway, The whole thing has now been frogged and I don't know how to start again. How does one go about making a pattern bigger?Sorry to run on and on but I would appreciate any help. Thanks so much!
