I'm new here! I found this site when searching for "knitting help". I'm a new knitter since last September. I've made a million scarves, an afghan, a sweater tank top and one sock (thou shalt not knit socks ever again, even though my one sock is so cute!) I taught myself through books so I don't have that one on one help. I have now come across a problem that I can't find an answer to:
How do I increase the size of a sweater? I have the book The Yarn Girls Guide To Simple Knits. I "was" attempting to knit teh "he'll wear it everyday" sweater on page 119, but I realized that the measurements would not be big enough for the person I am knitting it for. I'd like to increase the size to an XL but my cast on is either a choice of 78 (82, 84). Now, I know enough to know that is S/M/L with no XL provided.
Any smart people out there that can give me a quick rundown on how to do this? I know it can be done, but I don't want to screw it up.
Thanks much, for any help any can provide!
