I've made masks wider by just adding a "border" around the edges of the masks. You can probably add on more beads at the end of the pattern or in spaces that wont be noticed depending on the pattern

depends on the pattern and your ability to freform based on existing stuff. (depending on the pattern i simply work off the main pattern i like and just at the end of the origional each row focus on what i decided on doing as opposed to making a new pattern) if for instance it's something like this http://kandipatterns.com/patterns/animals/pink-bun... the bunnies have 1 black spacer row in between them you could increase it too 2. if you were making it a bare minimum of 6 beads wider you could elect to add another bunny

in the case of a pattern like this http://kandipatterns.com/patterns/simple/eequality... there's two easy options option one just make it wider with the background. Or you could simply increase the perimeter of the heart by one meaning each of the beads touching the red beads would become red in your new design and likewise the white beads in the middle of the heart would add one on each end

in the case of diagonal patterns (not sure if this is a glitch or what but this is perfect for explaining with the colored beads only go up to 28 out of the total 30) http://kandipatterns.com/patterns/simple/cotton-ca... the pink bead in the very bottom right corner would be where you'd add another pink bead followed by two blue beads before going up diagonally so the very last row of colored beads the top blue one would go diagonally up to be blue where the blank space is.

you could probably try to recreate the pattern in the pattern maker and make it larger for your own reference. (don't publish the pattern, but work off of the one you recreated.)
