Thank you! Yes, to translate to other sizes, think of squares across the front and back in inches rather than sts. The yarn chosen then would decide how many sts per inch. A calculator will get you a new pattern. However, you are limited to square shapes.
The basic number of squares on point means to measure across from point to point of the FIRST ROW after completion. It is weird, but it works.
The numbers of squares may be kept with only the size adjusted.
