Advice sought on how to alter patterns

Hi there, I'm a relatively new knitter who decided to take on the Kepler Cable Sweater as a project. Unfortunately for me, my measurements don't match those of the pattern. I can't just size the pattern up from where it is because the proportions are wrong for me. Does anyone have suggestions on a good tutorial (online or in a book) on how to adjust pattern sizing?

In the meantime, I think I might work on the Elann Sonata Crest of the Wave Tank. (I have a bunch of South West Trading Co. "Bamboo" yarn, which is made from actual bamboo fiber, in Butter color which will be perfect for this! Thankfully, the Elann pattern does come in sizes large enough for me.)
