How do you increase the size of a crochet pattern?

Can you double a crochet pattern to make it bigger?

As single crochet stitches are square, in theory you can double the size of an amigurumi pattern without changing the yarn or hook by doubling both the number of stitches in each round and the number of rounds, so each stitch of the pattern is turned into a 2×2 square of stitches (2 stitches wide and 2 rounds tall).

How do I adjust my crochet size?

Go down a hook size for a tighter fit. Adjust length by the amount of rounds you do. If you need a longer sweater, simply add rounds/rows of the garment until you get the length you need. You can also work less rounds/rows if you need a shorter garment.

What do I do if my crochet is too small?

If you find yourself crocheting too tightly, choose a larger crochet hook. If you find yourself crocheting too loosely, choose a smaller crochet hook. Hooks are not expensive, so it is worthwhile to keep a range of sizes on hand so you can switch if you find yourself working too tight or too loose for any project.

What happens if I use a bigger crochet hook?

If you are using the same pattern (same number of stitches and rows/rounds), a larger crochet hook will use up more yarn. If you are going for the same size of project (say a 36 by 36 inch blanket), a larger crochet hook will use up less yarn.
