Help with Pattern please
I have just knitted my grandaughter a Maxi Top/Dress pattern by Elena Nodel. It is a top down, worked in one piece on circular needles. It has turned out a little smaller around the chest than I thought and is a bit snug on her. My question is can I unpick this from the top down to an appropriate point in the pattern then reknit up upwards in the next size?

Hope this makes sense, I know what I mean so hope your lovely people do too.
Judy

You can't "frog it," but you can undo it. Watch here.

See if these directions or this video help. This is do-able. (video and directions are reversed but ok)

Thanks formthenlink, I am minding four young grandchildren at the moment and will watch the video when they have gone home. But, can you tell me what 'frogging' is ?. I assume it is what we Aussies call unpicking or undoing, am I on the right track?

Frogging is ripping back. A frog says "ribbit" which sounds like "rip it"...
