Foot and leg lengths patterns should be adjustable and noted in a way that makes these adjustments clear to the reader.
Here are some examples of how that could be written into your pattern:

  1. 1: Repeat leg chart A to increase length by 4" (10 cm)
  2. 2: Foot size may be lengthened or shortened by working additional repeats; 1 repeat = 2" (5 cm).
  3. 3: Leg may be lengthened or shortened by continuing in pattern as established for additional rounds; please note that this may require extra yarn.
