We've Moved!
We've moved! Not moved house- that would be far too much work... though, almost as much work is moving this blog. While I won't be taking any of these posts down, I will be posting here less frequently. You can find (and re-follow) me at: www.theknitguru.com

Hello,

This guy is about half what you want...in would recommend casting on twice as many stitches for the legs, knitting twice the rows of he legs and body... The increasing will work with more stitches anyway. Double the arm stitch cast on and rows....

The biggest issue will be the eye methinks. If you make a 2 eyed minion, the large sew on google eyes will work.... Otherwise you might want to crochet a white circle or use white felt as some have done in the past.

Does this make sense? If not, message or comment me and I will write a larger minion pattern for you.
ive had a request to make a minion roughly 24" high. Could i adjust the pattern accordingly ? and how ?

Hello... I would just keep increasing out rather than casting on more. If you kept increasing to say 20 on each side, you would need to add a couple of extra rows into the curved top piece, but it wouldn't be hard to figure out methinks. 
If I wanted to make this larger could I just add 4 more stitches to the cast on? Or just keep increasing until the width is correct? Thanks for the pattern, simple and classic, I love it!

For the benefit of Beth and Karen... I've just revised the pattern. (Somehow I missed the needle change part)
