Has anyone considered whether this children's sweater could be made into an adult size? The yarn is a sport weight/dk weight. I wonder if you could simply size it up by using a worsted or heavy worsted? I could start doing the math, but thought I would put it out here before I go off on a tangent. Scroll down to see a picture from the preview.

Thanks for your time!

If the gauge is based on the stitch pattern, I'd add width based on that.  Measure a piece of clothing that fits you in the places indicated in the diagram for the wrap.

Kids tend to be shorter, proportionally, than adults, so you may want to lengthen the back and the sleeve a bit more.  (Also, I think going from 24 to 18 stitches per 10cm would give you about a 36" bust from a 26" original - not so good if you're generously endowed.)
