I would like this in adult size. I have a friend who loves anything gengerbread. Please would you make a pattern for adults. This is just so cute. Thank You

I was wondering if this could be made into an adult size and how to increase the stitches. I think this is so cute and my husband would think it was adorable, I live in Egypt and the things that I make no one has seen before.
