I am creating a document using the memoir class and pedersen style. I am unable to change the size of the chapter number. I tried using code from memoir.cls (see last MWE at How to change the position of the Chapter Number (pedersen style of memoir)) but with no luck. Altering line \renewcommand*{\chapnumfont}{\normalfont\HUGE\itshape\colorchapnum} seems to affect everything but the font size!

The chapter number for this style is not really set using a font size, instead it is resized using \resizebox from graphicx

Here is the code being used

  \renewcommand*{\printchapternum}{%
    \sidebar{\raisebox{0pt}[0pt][0pt]{\makebox[0pt][l]{%
      \resizebox{!}{\midchapskip}{\chapnumfont\thechapter}}}}}

So here the length \midchapskip (which normally is the space between the chapter 1 line and the actual title, is here controlling the height of the resized chapter number. So you can use say \setlength\midchapskip{1cm} to set it to something else. The pedersen style sets it to 2cm.
