Working with more stitches than the pattern states

I have knitted a few dog jumpers from a pattern but now I have had a request to do the same for a larger dog which obviously means more stitches. How do I convert the rest of the pattern?

I'm not sure how easy the pattern is to convert.
Some patterns are harder than the others.
It's complicated because you have to change all the length and the width. First you decide how big you want it to be. Then you add appropriate # of stitches and rows to the pattern according to your st gauge.

There is a pattern for pet sweater that you can calculate any size you want. I think this will give you less headache. You need to have measurements of a dog though.

Here is a link to the pattern at ravely;
