Overview

Look great without adding bulk.

The geniuses behind Big Girl Knits present 25 all-new curve-flattering projects that explore the beauty of color & texture.

Jillian Moreno and Amy R. Singer brought the average American woman—a size 14—a collection of stylish, flattering patterns in Big Girl Knits. Now they’re back with 25 new curve-friendly projects that embrace color and texture, plus adaptations to make almost any pattern suitable for all shapes and sizes.

Part knitting instruction book and part sassy style guide, More Big Girl Knits goes beyond teaching the basics—fit, proportion, motif placement, and balance principles—to tackle all-new methods for creating knitwear with brilliant colors and sumptuous textures that voluptuous women can wear with pride. The second half of the book features attractive patterns, from jackets to sexy tank tops that are proportioned to fit and shaped to create a fetching silhouette. Packed with tips and tricks on what to avoid, what to embrace, and how to modify any design to flatter your body, this smart guide will show Big Girls how to look gorgeous in colorful, texture-rich knitwear.

From the Hardcover edition.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This is a knitting book for the plus-size females that mince no words, delivered with a large dollop of humor and no small technical and artistic wizardry…Who knew that ‘fabby’ was the word for big, beautiful girls?”
Booklist, starred review

From the Hardcover edition.

Library Journal

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.

    Customize to your hearts content!

    The answer I had been looking for to customize a cabled sweater that I'd worked on for a year and then discovered it was too small. The book provides a full explanation for making gussets and adding them into a sweater to fit you perfectly!! Highly appreciated and recommended.
