When knitting for larger figures, it is folly to go by the label sizes found on ready-to-wear knitted garments. Well aware of this, Moreno and Singer have wisely based the patterns in their second knitted pattern compendium (after Big Girl Knits) on actual measurements. The 25 featured designs-e.g., cardigans, shawls, and bags-are, if anything, more attractive than those in the earlier book and focus on accenting rather than hiding women's curves. Each pattern is coupled with multiple color-photo shots, schematics, and step-by-step instructions; all patterns are graded for level of difficulty, with most falling into the "intermediate knitting skills" category. The section of detailed information on styles, yarns, and knitting techniques that flatter the larger-sized woman is especially useful. Public libraries will find this a no-brainer acquisition, especially if the first volume was popular with patrons.
