On the needles now is this asymmetrical cardigan from the Fall 2004 Adrienne Vittadini book. I did a search of knitters who have knit AV patterns and let me tell you there are not too many. Why I wondered? The designs are so clean and classic. Maybe it is the sizing. Sure they have P, S, M, L sizes, but the actual dimensions for each pattern varies; one P size could be 32" across the chest, while another could be 34" or 36". I find it quite bizzare. Also, the length is not for a petite person. This pattern here is 26" long from hem to shoulder. I've resized the pattern (keeping fingers crossed that it will work out) to my small frame. Twenty six inches would be grazing the middle of my thighs.
