converting a pattern
 
Is there a way to convert a pattern written up for Petite sizes, to regular sizes??
I have a sweater pattern I want to do but it is in Petite sizes


??

well, possible, yes. But depending on the pattern it may be little or a lot of work. The answer is not just simple.

Can you post a link to the pattern? Or can you provide a picture (maybe scanned) at least? That would help to evaluate the amount of change that needs to be done - or maybe someone knows a pattern just like it, or anything.

If your pattern can be found on libraries like Ravelry, maybe someone has made it in a different size before?

I dont know if you know of the book "25 gorgeous sweaters" by Catherine Ham. I love the pattern for the "Cozy Cardigan"
It was a book I found at my local library, and being still new to knitting I dont know how I would make the pattern bigger to fit a reguar Small. Med. Large size. I was thinking by adding 20 or 30 extra stitches to the all around pattern. dont know if that would work...?

Yes a specific pattern does help. I found a link to it here on page 35. It does give S M and L sizes though, not just petite. The numbers in the () show sts and measurments for the different sizes. Do you know what you want your finished measurement to be?

Petite is just a size that's smaller than Small. Some patterns would have XSm Sm Med and L.
