View Full Version : Adapting patterns?!

Hi there,

I've recently finished knitting a teddy bear from a pattern and love it so much that I'd like to make more, but smaller versions. How do I half the size of the pattern? I thought it'd possibly be as simple as halfing the number of rows but I maybe it'd distort it?!

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks :)

Use a smaller number (can be half or any percentage) of both rows and stitches.

Smaller yarn and needles?
