How can you increase/decrease the weight of an icon (vector) in Sketch?

For increase: - I added an outside border around the icon, then did Layers -> Convert Outlines.

I got this: Icon after Converting to Outlines

Any tips on increasing and/or decreasing the weight of an icon in Sketch and properly exporting it so it doesn't look super jank in Illustrator or on the Web would be SUPER appreciated.

Thank you!

I always set the same color with border.

Three steps I need to do:

1st, Import/Create your icon. enter image description here

2nd, Add a border style. enter image description here

3rd, Pick the same color. enter image description here

Finished! enter image description here
