    How would you go about making a larger size, chest size 48?

    • susyranner says:

      I would recommend that you download the Knitware software then re-create the pattern yourself using the style components that I selected (they are at the top of the instructions for the pattern) and using your own tension measurements. That way you’ll end up with a garment that looks the same as mine but the pattern will be tailored to suit your size and yarn.
