HOW TO ADOPT THE PATTERN FOR BIGGER SIZES.

My suggestions for bigger sizes is to add more rows to the cuff ribbing.Once the cuff fits you crochet the sleeve upwards.For bigger sizes of course you will need more baubles at the 1st row.My suggestions will be that you add at least 1 bauble for each size.For example:

M size  1st bauble row 8 baubles

L size   1st bauble row 9 baubles

XL size  1st bauble row 10 baubles

and so on.

Also keep going 1 more bauble row for each 2 sizes.For example:

M size   7-8 bauble rows

L size     8 bauble rows

XL size     8-9 bauble rows

and so on.Its better to try on the sleeve and see if its long enough.

Hope these suggestions help and i would love to see your bauble cardigans.
