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.

Smaller both height and width? You could use half (or 3/4 or any percentage) of both sts and rows.

Another easy way to make it smaller is to just use a smaller gauge/thinner yarn!
