31  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: how to change the size of a knitting pattern on: September 01, 2013 07:16:27 AM
At 4 sts per inch, 96 sts is going to make it 24" around which is quite large. You can use thinner yarn and smaller needles to downsize, or you can use less sts. Take your sts per inch and multiply it by the head size less an inch or so and that's approximately the number of sts you need. You can use less stitches in the 'k24' sections, taking them down to 16 or 18 or something to reduce to the number that you need. For an approximate head size based on age, here's a chart - http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/headsize.html - though children's heads come in all sizes. My 4 yo grand daughter measures 20", while other kids her age may be 18". This chart - http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/size-chart.html - may be a little more precise.

Yep, that would be what you do.

Knitpicks.com has a good variety of yarn, decent quality and great prices right now with their semiannual yarn sale until the beginning of August or so. Another site is elann.com; you have to sign in but they offer great discounts on brand name middle to high quality yarn as well as good pricing on their house brand. Both these sites offer similar yarns that you'd find in your local yarn store.

Things like the RS logo and any artwork from their covers would be covered under trademark or copyright laws and not available to be reproduced. So unless you design your own version, you might not be able to find anything.

It's the side that's toward you.

I can't load the link, it's 'forbidden'. However, my guess is you're to do it on every following row 3 times. It's okay to write a couple of lines of the pattern to get help on it. That helps give us more context.

Yay! Glad it worked out.

It's better to use appropriate needles for the yarn, then do a smaller size of the pattern. Knit the increase rows/rounds until the body stitches are about the chest measurement you want, then CO a few stitches at the underarm. I'm presuming this is a top down yoke. Knit the lengths for the body and sleeves for the 24 mo size so he can wear it longer.

Sure, you can make it larger, just use measurements. Here's a chart with actual body measurements for children - http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/childsize.html - you probably want to do a size 4. Add 2" to the chest measurement, which will be the number of rows. The number of stitches CO at the body will determine the length, and you need the sleeve circumference for the cast on at the wrist. If you can measure something he wears that's not small for him, just use those measurements for sizing. Sleeves knit a little longer and rolled up, and length a bit longer mean he may be able to wear it for 2 years, so larger isn't always bad. Once they reach the toddler sizes, kids grow taller faster than wider.

I think your stitches are twisted, which can cause it to bias, and would make the k2tog lean to the left. Knit the sts in the leg closest to the tip of the needle, and for the decs, you would probably have to do ssk instead of k2tog.
