I have a vintage pattern that my daughter wants me to make for her for a shawl/cape for her wedding. Wouldn't you know the wedding is June 20. The pattern is from the 50's and it is a size 12 - she is a size 20. I have her measurements. How do I convert that size 12 to a size 20 or to the measurements she needs.

Thanking all of you...Mother of the Bride...

What is the name on the pattern? If we can see what it looks like it would help. Or if you have a link we can see it. Don't post the pattern here though, that's a copyright violation.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

You could knit it on larger needles which would give it a lacier look too. But a picture can help us give more specific answers.
