Overview

At last, a book of crochet patterns devoted entirely to the plus-size woman!

Plus-size gals are a group that seems to be neglected in the plethora of crochet books on the market. The author, Margaret Hubert, has often been approached at trade shows and through her classes by women in this size category, begging her to design patterns that would fit them. A plus-size crocheter cannot simply take a smaller pattern and increase the number of stitches or rows to get a garment that fits and flatters. There are lots of proportion considerations when designing patterns for larger sizes.

Plus Size Crochet has 20 crocheted garments and accessories for plus-size women. The projects are stylish and flattering for various large figure types. There are also hints and tips to help the crocheter accommodate her special needs.

  • Only crochet book for plus-size women
  • Similar to the books in our popular "Hooked" series: easy to use with lay-flat wire-o binding, stitch detail photos, project specs at a glance
  • Includes crochet basics section with step-by-step photos

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Plus-size pattern designers fit roughly into two camps: the flaunt-your-curves designers and the disguise-those-figure-flaws-and-look-slimmer" designers. In this book-one of the few titles available on crocheting for the plus-size figure-Hubert, a longtime crochet teacher and author, places herself squarely into the second camp. The book contains 20 figure-flattering designs for cardigans, jackets, and accessories for sizes 1X to 4X, all with complete step-by-step instructions and clear photos of each project, plus close-up photos of garment details and the yarn used in the designs. Enthusiastically recommended for public libraries.
