You could always use a bigger hook and yarn size to make it bigger. Another way to make things get bigger is using two strands of yarn (you may want to up the hook size for that too though). It all depends on what the pattern calls for in the beginning.

Yes you can double whatever yarn the pattern called for, and perhaps 1.5x the hook size of whatever pattern called for. However, I am only speaking of amigurumi only.

I’m sure it’s a whole different ball game when it comes to garments.

If you don’t have to do any special stitches, you could also double the number of stitches. I’ve done that a couple of times on very simple patterns.

Using a thicker weight yarn than the pattern calls for can definitely make it bigger but I’m not sure if there’s a way to modify the pattern itself.
