Its no secret that women come in all sizes and shapes, yet due to editorial space constraints, most crochet garment patterns are only given for specific sizes and measurements. If you are one of many who want to know how to enlarge a pattern size, help is at hand. By following the four steps outlined in this article, you can successfully enlarge patterns that result in a perfect, professional look and fit regardless of your size or shape.
The Classic Chanel Jacket featured with this article see photo on next page is the perfect type of garment for your first attempt at enlarging pattern sizing. Unless you are adept at pattern drafting and the mathematical formulas required, avoid cap or raglan sleeves when enlarging pattern sizes.

The sleeves on the Classic Chanel Jacket appear to be cap sleeves, but they are actually straight across the top sleeve and the length of the sleeve is simply extended to fit into the armhole opening. The amount of ease allowed difference between actual and finished measurements is rarely given consideration when one decides which size to crochet, yet it is a critical component when it comes to how a garment fits.
It is not unusual to discover that the most comfortable fit for a jacket or other outer garment has more ease than one expects. To ensure a comfortable fit, you may prefer six to eight inches of ease which will allow enough room for comfortable, unrestrictive movement. Measure your jacket see Fig. Bust around the fullest part of the chest 2.

Step Two: Making Swatches Before making any changes to the basic pattern you wish to enlarge, crochet a swatch, at least 4 inches square using the yarn and hook size required to obtain the. Step One: Taking Measurements Most women know their bust size and sleeve length, and all too often use those measurements when determining the size of pattern to make.
Start by tak Our pattern calls for a size J hook to get a gauge of 5 stitches and 4 rows each to equal 2 inches. To begin, chain 26, hdc in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch to end: 25 hdc. Work even in hdc until 4 inches in length. Remember, when crocheting you are creating fabric. You need this first swatch to determine the feel and look of the fabric in the original pattern. Your swatch reveals whether the fabric created is firm or soft, has drape and how close or far apart stitches are placed. Step Three: Measuring Gauge Accurately Gauge is the most critical element of any garment because it determines not only the garments measurements, but also the ultimate outcome.
After completing a swatch, smooth it out gently, and lay it flat. Do not touch or adjust the swatch again before measuring. Use a slotted gauge and lay it flat against the swatch see photo below , counting and writing down the number of stitches, including partial stitches, that show within the 2inch horizontal slot; then measure and record the number of rows shown in the 2-inch vertical slot. As you can see, our swatch exactly matches our pattern gauge of 5 stitches and 4 rows each to equal 2 inches.
If the stitches that show within the slot are not full stitches, then use the.

Measuring a second time, over a greater number of inches also serves to ensure that your first 2-inch measurement is accurate. Step Four: Doing the Math After comparing your own measurements to those given in our schematic, you may be able to enlarge the pattern simply by using a larger hook. For example, try making another swatch with. Compare the two swatches, writing down the differences. When it comes to measuring gauge, the number of stitches per inch is more important than the number of rows per inch, as it is the number of stitches per inch that determines the width of the fabric you crochet.
If your row count is a bit off, you can crochet to the lengths given on the schematic or to the desired length. A - or -inch in total length doesnt make a big difference in how a garment fits, but - or September CrochetMagazine. Required Gauge 2. If true gauge is 2. If Iftrue 2. If true is 3: 3: If truegauge gauge is sts sts divided divieded by by 3 3. Shown above see Fig. As you can see, when you smooth out a swatch and alter the true gauge by as little as inch, the true difference in width makes a significant and usually unexpected alteration!
I do not recommend increasing the hook size more than one or two sizes because doing so causes distinct changes in the fabric itself. The larger the hook size, the looser and more stretchy the fabric becomes, resulting in the loss of the integrity of the fabric itself. Changing hook sizes more than one size works best for lacy fabrics, granny squares or motifs. This technique is best used for items other than garments, such as afghans, handbags, pillows or other items where specific measurements are not as critical as are those needed for wellfitting garments.
Using your swatch and gauge, you can now calculate the number of stitches required for the width of the finished size you desire. The following examples explain this process. However, if your swatch has a different gauge, you will use that number Back If you want to enlarge our pattern by one size, or 4 inches, you will need a total width of 52 inches. The back will be half that amount, or 26 inches. Write this number down at the bottom of the schematic for the back. Remember to add 1 to your number of 65 for the beginning number of chains, for a total of 66 chains.
Work the back to desired length or number of rows to armhole. Fasten off and follow instructions below. Before deducting stitches for the armhole opening, check the width of the upper sleeve, which must equal the total of the front and back armhole depths. If you have slim arms, you may wish to make your sleeves narrower. If you have full arms, you may wish to widen the upper sleeve, remembering to alter the armhole depth accordingly. For example, if you need an upper arm width of 22 inches half this number results in an armhole depth of 11 inches , multiply 22 by 2.
Next, deduct your shoulder to shoulder measurement from the total back. Multiply this number by 2. If this number is an odd number, either add or subtract one stitch, so you are working with even numbers. Divide that number in half to determine the number of stitches that must be skipped at both the beginning and end of the next row of the back to shape the armhole. Skipping the required stitches at both the beginning and end of the next row, work even in hdc to within two rows less than desired length. As you can see on the schematic, 6 79 sts are skipped for each armhole. To determine the number of stitches for each shoulder, you must first determine the back neck width times the gauge.
For example, if you wish a back neck width of 8 inches, multiply 8 x 2. However, if the total number of stitches required for the width of your jacket is an uneven number, then you must add one stitch to or subtract one stitch from the back neck so each shoulder has the same number of stitches.
Subtract 20 back neck sts from the number of stitches needed for the shoulder to shoulder measurement and divide that answer in half. The answer is the number of stitches needed for each shoulder. Work across this same number of stitches for first shoulder; turn and work second row. Skip the 20 back neck sts. Attach yarn to next st, ch 2 counts as first hdc , and work the same total number of stitches counting the beg ch-2 as one stitch as were worked for the first shoulder.
Fronts Each front requires half the number of stitches of the total back. Should the number of stitches for the back be an uneven number, subtract one stitch from that number and divide the answer in half to determine the number of stitches. Simply work even until the front length and number of rows equals that of the back. No changes are required for the armhole depth or for the shoulders as they will remain the same as the back.
The only other change left to make is to calculate the front neck shaping and drop. The drop is measured from the first row of the neckline shaping to the shoulder. Use your garment to determine this measurement. Lets say you want a 5-inch drop and two rows equaling 1 inch. Multiply the drop of 5 inches by 2 rows per inch , and you will then have 10 rows in which to shape the front neckline. Begin by dividing the back neck stitches in half to determine the total number of stitches to be deducted.
Neckline shaping is created by skipping an initial number of stitches and then gradual decreases. In our pattern, one stitch is decreased by working 2 sts tog every other row, three times, for a total of 3 stitches. Subtract those 3 stitches from the total number of stitches required for the neck 10 , or 7 sts. Then skip the first 7 sts to start the initial neck shaping. Attach yarn to next st and work to end of the row. Begin the next row by working hdc dec in next 2 hdc. Begin by determining the length desired for sleeves. Deduct one inch for the edging.
Write this length on the schematic. Write down across upper sleeve on schematic the total number of stitches required to fit armhole as previously described. Using a tape measure held in a circle, determine what width is required to comfortably insert one hand. Use this measurement and multiply it by your gauge to determine the number of stitches needed for the first row of a sleeve. Deduct the number of stitches in the first row wrist from the number required for the last row upper sleeve.
Divide this number by twothis is the number of stitches that must be increased, at each edge of the sleeve, to achieve the total needed number of stitches at upper sleeve. For example, for size Large, 28 stitches are required for the first row, ending with 48 stitches across the top of the sleeve. Multiply row gauge 2 rows equals 1 inch or substitute your own gauge by desired sleeve length. Size Large has a sleeve length of 16 inches, as the 1 inch has already been deducted from the total length. Divide 33 rows by 10 number of stitches to be increased to determine how often to work the increases.
Using our example, you would increase 1 st at each end of every third row, ten times, to equal the needed total of 20 stitches to be increased and then work the remaining three rows even. The sleeve extension beyond desired sleeve length is required to fit into the armhole and must match the September CrochetMagazine.

Andrew Shirk, a friend who was attending the University of Kansas in Lawrence asked me to partner with him to put on a fashion show at KU. After some thought, I decided to take this opportunity. Growing up, I had learned how to sew from my mother and grandmother. They always told me that I could do anything if I just put my mind to it.
I taught myself how to drape fabric and learned how to design patterns through a basic pattern-making course at M U I, during which I designed and made 26 outfits and 8 bags. Neither Andrew nor I had fashion show related experience, but even with this lack of experience we were able to draw over people to KUs first fashion show, which included our garment designs and our theme for the runway and the runway lighting. After getting such a positive result, I knew that I had to get into design. I believe that everything happens for a reason, so when the fashion show opportunity came along, I ran with it.
Around the same time, I picked up a brochure on an Emerging Young Designers design competition and thought that this was another opportunity too good to pass up. I told Andrew about the competition, and we both entered pieces. Much to our surprise, we both made the finalist group, which meant our designs were headed to the final competition. In the meantime, I thought about what my options would be if I decided to get a career in design. I had no accredited training or experience in design, and the degree that I was working toward would land me in a more merchandising-type position than a design-type position.
I researched the available masters degree programs, and found that the two top schools in New York only offered associates degrees in design, so I decided to finish taking my undergraduate courses at Stephens College in Columbia, which offered a bachelors degree in fashion design. Andrew also placed and came away with third place in evening wear and a Brother sewing machine.
We were very excited! I am now starting my second semester at Stephens College and am learning a lot. I will be working as an intern this summer, and I plan to graduate in May After graduating, I hope to land a job as an assistant designer in New York City, so I can work my way up to head designer. I also would like to try to start my own line, or at least open a boutique that will carry my designs. My ultimate goal is to work my way up to be a part of one of the haute couture houses. Like my mother and grandmother have always said, You can do anything if you put your mind to it.
And my mind is set. The crochet dress that won first prize was inspired by one of my best high school friends, Casie Berkbigler, who also modeled it in the competition see photos. I wanted this outfit to look and feel like it could be couture, and I am very pleased with the results. I have never read a crochet pattern, so I simply added and subtracted stitches until the dress looked like something that would fit Casie. I tried it on her one time, and it fit like a glove. This dress was one of the 26 outfits I had made for the fashion show at KU, and it was the outfit I most enjoyed making. About Meghan Meghan Petty is 23 years old.
She was born in Springfield, Missouri, went to high school in Pleasant Hope, attended MU for four years and Stephens College for one semester three more to go. Her parents are Randy and Darlene Petty, and she has one sister Aubrey ,. She has always loved the arts, whether it be playing the clarinet or the violin, singing, dancing and even drawing and painting.
Creativity has always been a huge part of her life. She feels that getting back to her creative roots has been very fulfilling. September CrochetMagazine. Usually the first thought is What have I done wronghave I misread the pattern? When you have reached the point where you have stopped crocheting because your project is shape-shifting, and there doesnt appear to be anything you misread or omitted, your enthusiasm takes a dive.
You begin to think of other reasons. Maybe you picked up a thicker or finer gauge of thread, or perhaps you accidentally misread the hook size. However, when you find these are also correct, both your joy and your confidence begin to fade. So what can you do to perfectly produce that delightful pattern you really wanted to make? After being unable to find any place in the pattern where you might have made an error and you cannot see where While there may not always be an immediate solution to producing the exact article you set out to make, there are ways to adapt what you have already created into something beautiful.
So, instead of ripping it out and wasting all the time and effort spent on it so far, think about the ideas given herethey may be just right for you. If time is at a premium, look at the section Be Creative to change what you have begun into a different article. However, if you do have the time to start again to produce your original project take the time to read the section on How Were the Stitches Worked?
The solution of what you need to do in order to make your piece lie flat is probably there. From round 9, to make the bowl shape more pronounced, I reduced the number of chains, creating the chain spaces as given in the original pattern. The yellow doily pattern Photo 2 was worked. Once you notice your motif is curving inward or upward often after a whole nights work , curb any impulse to rip it out immediately for it is always worth spending a moment or two to think about what it can be turned into.
Finding an idea you like and making it happeneven if its in a different way than you originally plannedgives a wonderful feeling, and, as a bonus, you know your gift is an original. Obviously, there will be some things that will limit what the motif can be made into, for instance, its size and design. One suggestion would be to convert a circular motif into a bonnet.
Depending upon its size, this can range from a tiny doll in a dolls house to an infant or fullsize baby doll, when it might be necessary to add ribbon ties. If the motif did not contain any heavily textured stitches, the crochet could be lined with silk and used as a christening bonnet. The coaster pattern I designed would not be suitable for a baby because of its embossed center. However, for a small bag design, it might be perfect. Alternatively, if the motif is not too open and lacy, it can be stiffened with a fabric stiffener and turned into a bowl. These bowls are wonderful containers for candy, cookies or even fruit.
Bowl shapes can be turned upside down and made into decorative covers for jars and other containers, which are particularly useful for keeping the flies out in summer. It may not be necessary to stiffen the crochet if using it as a lid. Instead, you may wish to thread ribbon close to the edge and tie the ribbon around the neck of the container to prevent its contents from falling out of the jelly jar or pot.
When working with a hook that is. Be creative and keep the fullness that has started to emerge and play with the pattern, allowing the fullness to form frills or pleats. Accentuate the frilling by working the last row by placing two stitches in each stitch and then nipping the edges to form regular flutes as you would when making a pie. You can, of course, add more rounds to form a much bigger frill, but in that instance you would not necessarily need to continue increasing the number of stitches.
I recommend a minimum of six rounds of carefully watching the gauge, but preferably ten, before you can be sure your work is going to turn out to be what you were hoping for. One point to remember is that the pattern being followed may have been designed in a different country where they have been taught to make the stitches in a different way.
An obvious example is the American double crochet, which is worked exactly like the British treble crochet. However, it is not only the stitch name that may differ; it can also be the way the stitch is formed. Taking the double crochet as our example, it is normally accepted that when you insert the hook into the fabric being made, the loop on the hook, the yarn over hook and the loop being pulled through the fabric should all be the same size, and the hook should be on a diagonal see Photo 4. Working with thread is different from working with yarn.
Cotton and linen do not have the characteristic give that wool, acrylics and other fibers and fiber mixes have. This means the gauge needs to be accurate and the stitches worked evenly, for the differences in the way it has been crocheted will be obvious to the eye of even a non-crocheter.
Remember, too, it is the top of the stitch which gives the correct circumference to a round because the base of the stitch can be squashed together without the shape being distorted. Keep your eye on the top of the round being worked, checking the gauge each round, especially at the beginning and for the first few rounds, as that is where the distortion. On the European Continent, however, they would work this stitch by lifting the loop being pulled through to the front of the work, so the hook is either horizontal or just a little bit tilted see Photo 5.
Sometimes when I am sent work to assess, the double crochet has been worked in the way of what I call an extended double crochetthe stitch used in the Polish Star Stitch design. This begins as a double crochet but once the loop has been pulled through and there are three loops on the hook, the yarn is placed over the hook and pulled through only one loop see Photo 6. The double crochet is then completed in the normal way.
So, as you crochet the pattern in front of you in the traditional American way, if the pattern has been produced by a designer trained to crochet using either of the other two methods, your motif will not lie flat. Sometimes using a magnifying glass and placing it over the stitches photographed in the commercial pattern can give you a clue.
Alternatively, try both of the other methods over three or four rounds to see if that is helping to keep the article flat. One is holding it like a pencil; the other is to hold it like a violin bow. If you are using a thread hook which is shaped like a stiletto, how you hold your hook does not matter. However, in both cases it is necessary for one of the fingers of the hand holding the hook to be used as a stop to prevent the thread loop from sliding further up the shaped part of the crochet hook.
It is this finger that will There is one other point to keep in mind when working with thread. Should you find you are going through a stressful time, your gauge may alter. I hope this never happens. Leave your larger projects for more relaxed moments, such as watching TV, listening to the radio, sitting outside on a beautiful day, or whenever and wherever you can have some quiet, restful time.

Rejection is part of life, even in the publishing world, but it doesnt necessarily mean that your creative crochet work of art isnt publication-worthy. So, is this the end?
Do you say, My work is obviously not good enough to be published, so there is no reason to pursue this further? If so, look closely at my wagging finger as I say No, no, no a thousand times, no! In my experience of talking to and working with many aspiring designers, I have seen the discouragement of a first design rejection cause some very gifted individuals to doubt their designing talents. It made them want to throw in the towel on what could and most likely would be a promising and prosperous crochet design careergiven time, dedication and perseverance.
I have often wondered just how many bright, talented crochet designers work the world never had the pleasure of seeing simply because it all ended with the pain of that first rejection. Too many, I would wager. So, why is a design often rejected? There can be a number of reasons, the first and most obvious being that it is simply a poor design that was not well planned or executed.
When submitting a design to a publisher, be your own worst critic and make a detailed evaluation of your design before sending it. Is it a well-thought-out concept that results in a well-crafted design? Is the style of your design timely for the current marketplace? Is it a design that crocheters would enjoy and appreciate, and that a publisher would find valuable for its customers?
If the design is in completed form, is it well-made, eye-catching and nicely finished? Detach yourself from your creation I know its your baby but and review it with a critical, impartial eye. Ask other people whose opinions you value because you know they will be honest to evaluate your design as well. You have to feel good about your design before you can expect a publisher to appreciate it.
If you have thoroughly assessed your design and are confident of its quality and appeal, then believe in your work and in yourself! It may still be rejected by a publisher, but this rejection most likely wont be because they thought it was a poor design. It may be that you submitted a project that really didnt fit the concept of the companys publication.
For example, you submitted designs for kitchen pot holders or bathroom accessories to a crochet magazine that primarily features high-end fashions. They may be really cute, clever designs, but obviously your pot holders or bath items arent a good fit for that particular magazine. Take the time to study various crochet publications and see what types of designs they generally tend to feature and submit accordingly. The shoe has to fit! Another reason your design may be rejected simply comes down to a matter of timing.
You need to submit appropriate. Thats why its a good idea to contact a publisher and ask them for their crochet editorial calendar or schedule of design reviews. This will let you know what types of designs they are looking for and when they will be reviewing them. The old adage timing is everything is very true when it comes to getting the right design into a publishers hands at the right time. If you submit a home decor item to a publisher when its fashions, toys or baby items they are looking for at that particular time, your design stands a good chance of being passed over.
But, dont hesitate to resubmit the same design to the same publisher at a later time when they are in need of that type of project. The right timing on your second try just might pay off. If you keep having the same design rejected over and over by different publishers, perhaps its time to take a closer look at your design and reevaluate it. There may be a good reason why several. You and others may have deemed it a very good design, but perhaps something is missing or not quite right in the overall design. Is there something you can change about the design, or add to it, that will enhance its appeal?
It might be something as simple as changing the color scheme or type of yarn, or adding some embellishment. Over the years, there were many times when I reworked some of my designs sometimes making only very minor changes to turn good designs into better and more importantly, saleable ones. It can really be worth the effort! When your first design rejection happens and it will , dont despair, and above all, dont take it personally. A design rejection is not a publishers personal affront on the individual who submitted the design.
A project is reviewed and critiqued solely on the merits of its quality and appeal. The best therapy for the pain of design rejection is a good dose of perseverance. Again, if you are confident that you have a high-quality design with strong customer appeal, then chin up, square those shoulders and immediately resubmit your design to another publisher. If it comes back, send it to another.
Its a likely bet that some editor, somewhere, at some point in time, will find your design perfect for his or her publishing needs. If you know your work is good, and you feel that its worthy of publication, its a good bet there is an editor somewhere who will, too. Never lose belief in yourself or your capabilities. Even the most talented designers are on shaky ground when they lack the confidence and fortitude to hang in there and persist in their efforts to get publishers to sit up and take notice of their work. It WILL happen! Feeling better? Good now go and submit that wonderful crochet work of art that will most likely sooner or later become some editors publishing treasure.
