Comfy Stars Sweater Modifications

Length

To adjust the length of the sweater, add or subtract 4 stitches from the initial chain for each inch you are looking to add or subtract.  For example, for a sweater that is 30” long, make a chain of 99 (the XL size) and add 16, for a total chain of 115.

Width/Circumference of Body Panels

Do adjust the overall body measurements, decide on overall circumference desired, and divide by two.  This will give you your desired panel size.  Add or subtract a pattern repeat (rows 1-4) for each 2” you would like to add or subtract.  Note: Each repeat is just shy of 2” You may need to add an additional repeat to get desired width.
