Alright i bought some baby yarn that is the same color of a lamb i had when i was baby. I want to make the lamb a friend (seeing it's my only stuffed lamb) any way to get to the point
this pattern says it makes it to be 6" high now lets say i wanted to make it bigger... for example 12" bigger ( i don't know truly the size i want it yet but just trying to come up)

but it says

ch2
rnd 1: 6 sc in 2nd from the hook do not join...

if i wanted to make it 12" instead of 6"

should it be

ch4
rnd 1 :12 sc in 2nd from the hook do not join?

I think you should still ch2 and work the 12 sc in the 2nd chain from the hook. Good luck!

would that be the same for any alternation for patterns?

Unfortunately, it's not that straightforward, if you want it to come out nice. It would help to see the pattern you are using and a picture of the finished lamb.

Generally, a 6 stitch ring is the starting point for most Ami. Doubling that would make the circle bigger but it would still only be two stitches wide.

You would probably start the same way. To make it bigger you could add more increases and more rows. Its hard to say exactly what to do without the pattern.

I would love to swap for things kids could do in the car on a long car trip (3 girls ages 5-12). I can knit, crochet or trade yarn.

You could also try using a bigger hook and thicker yarn. It might not double in size, but you could at least get it a bit bigger if altering the pattern isn't working for you.

Whenever I want to make a pattern bigger, I use the same pattern, but I use a size K hook and bulky yarn. I find that Lion Brand Homestyle USA and Thick & Quick work really good. This usually doubles or triples the size of the original pattern.
