Hi all. I was interested in knitting Amanda's Squatty Sidekick found here> http://www.knittingdaily.com/freepatterns/felted_items/45-1.html  which is a great pattern for a super cute purse, but I was hoping there was a way to make it bigger?  I am mathematically challenged, so all I could figure was double strand and go up a few more needle sizes than recommended?
If any one has any better suggestions than my pathetic one  Roll Eyes I would much appreciate it.

Thanks in advance!

I made this 2 times and used 2 different yarns, it was amazing the size difference just the different yarns made.  One is like double the size of the other after felting.   I bet it would be bigger the way you suggested.  Or you could just make the bottom bigger and make the straight part of the bag part longer.   I don't think you'd need that much math, just wing it!  Hmmm, I just tried to look at the pattern and I forgot my user name and password for that site!

Thanks Kelliz!  Hopefully that works. I have some fairly thick (bulky I believe) wool, so hopefully that makes it big enough and if not... I can always make a second one and figure it out from there, which is sooooo much easier after you've already made something and understand the design.  Cheesy  Anyhow, I digress. Thanks for the advice!
