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.
Two of the brightest stars of the knitting world, Big Girls AMY R. SINGER and JILLIAN MORENO are the coauthors of Big Girl Knits. Amy is the editor of Knitty.com, has a regular column in Interweave Knits, and lives in Toronto, Ontario. Jillian lives in Michigan and is a knitwear designer.
“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?”
