5 Patterns Perfect for Petites!

As the weather moves from winter to warmer, a cardigan can serve as a great transitional piece. I'm a very petite person, so fit is always a concern, especially when it comes to sleeves. I prefer tops that have 3/4 sleeves because they end up being regular-sized - perfect for a small woman like myself!

I'd been eyeing the Perfect Crochet Cardigan for awhile and since with March is National Crochet Month, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to start this wishlist project. I had also needed an excuse to use the Fishermen's Wool® in my stash, which turned out to be a great substitute for Amazing® - I didn't even have to change hook sizes!

It really is the "perfect cardigan" -  it worked up quickly, taking only a week to finish, and it fits great. I can also roll up the sleeves, as you can see, to create my own 3/4 sleeve effect. As a crafter, I added pockets so I have someplace to put my yarn cutter and measuring tape when I need it. It can even serve as a coat on those cooler spring evenings.

For more ideas, I've selected four projects that work well for petites!
