I have a few stitch dictionaries and I would like to play around with using some of the different stitches in hats, mitts etc.  However, I need some guidance on how to increase/decrease lace or cable patterns (or just really any textured stitch patterns) that would let me do the shaping without messing up the stitch pattern.  Does anyone know of any good resources/tuts on this?

thanks!  Smiley

Most pattern shaping is done at the edges of the work so it doesn't intrude into the stitch pattern much. For lace, it's generally incorporated into the pattern - and extra YO or two without a k2tog, or vice versa, leaving out a YO. With cable patterns to inc/dec in the middle of a row you can do them in the reverse st st in between the cables.
