Hi All,

No pictures yet, but I wanted to ask some advice. I just bought this for my daughter after seeing the sample hanging on the rack and handed over my credit card without looking at the kit.

My daughter is definitely a plus size, and the kit only comes in small or medium/large. I've taken the needle size up to US #6, and added an additional 35 stitches.

So far, I've completed 8 t-stripes, or 24 rows of pattern. The weave is coming out slightly looser than I remember from the sample, but that's okay. But I just wondered if anybody else had tried to enlarge a pattern, and what kind of results they were having. -- Cheers, Laurie

I haven't tried it, but this is one of the few of Hanne's designs that I think would work fine since it is knit in a standard direction and it doesn't have to fit exactly (it doesn't have darts at a waist, for example)

Let us know how you do.
