SAVE YOUR MONEY
I heard the title of the book and was looking forward to it coming out and had even preordered the book. I shouldn't have even bothered. The patterns only go up to a 48" bust ( and, in my opinion, this is not true plus size) and they are frankly, boring. They are a rehash of many other patterns currently available on the market, many of them, free. There are a few books on the market that really suit the plus size knitter but, unfortunately, this isn't one of them.

Finally - patterns designed for the FULL-FIGURED woman!
I love the patterns in this book (I've made one and am working on a second one). They are intelligently designed for a full-figured woman (our curves are different than on a slender body!) and the sizes will adequately cover most larger women. And the designs are generally very flattering!<BR/><BR/>My only complaint: too many of the designs are frilly (lots of ruffles, especially around the neckline) or have rounded necklines or raglan sleeves, none of which are flattering on me or my daughter.<BR/><BR/>But I still would recommend this book to anyone who knits for a larger female. The patterns can be altered to suit. Overall, a very good book.
