Hi I want to do this cardigan but it’s only 0-3 months and I need 3-6 months .
I’ve noticed the pattern consists of 11 stitches across row, could I add another 11 or 22 sts to make it bigger I’ve found another of her patterns that’s for 3-6 months but that’s 115 sts so wouldn’t add up thanks

Wait, check the gauge first of what the pattern lists and what your gauge is. Then check standard measurements charts to see how much more widthwise and lengthwise you need. This pattern seems different to me since it has raglan sleeves that have to be sewn in after the garment body is made. Perhaps you could find a top down pattern that would incorporate the sleeves as you go. If your top down knitting isn't large enough for the 3-6 month size you can just keep increasing until you get to the desired width and then you can make it as long as you like or think appropriate.

Just be careful if you print the pattern as there are sometimes several and you can end up printing several pages !

I’d find another similar shaped pattern in the correct size, then knit the pattern section from the original pattern. Much easier than trying to size up.

I would too. It’s much easier just to get a pattern in the correct size. There are loads to choose from.

You could go up 2 sizes of needles and adjust length for size you want.

She has several top down patterns in other sizes that you could begin, then simply work the lacy portion on the body of the sweater. Since this pattern seems to have started from bottom up, you would probably have to work the chart from top down, instead of the normal bottom up.

Use worsted weight yarn instead of DK and go up a needle size. Should work.
