Review:

"Every plus-size woman has probably looked at an array of knitting books and wished the patterns could be converted for someone of her size. Well, the patterns in this book are so attractive that the plus-size ladies' skinnier sisters might wish for the same thing. With clear instructions and crisp color photographs showing the sweaters from different angles, this volume will fill a need on many knitting shelves." - Booklist

"It's refreshing to find a book which not only addresses plus-sized designs (there are others, but not many), but which also deals with the extra information you need to consider to fit a plus-sized sweater." - Knitting Scholar

"Now we're talking, Interweave. Bring on the designs for the big girls!" – Knitting at Large blog

"It's fantastic" - I Knit London

"This book features excellent writing, solid information, and great-looking projects." - Knit n' Style

"This fantastic offering belongs on your bookshelf right next to the Big Girl Knits books and the Curvy Knits ones, too." - Knitting at Large blog

"I'll start by talking about the patterns in this book, since that's what so many plus sized knitters are looking for. They are good, wearable, and just enough of traditional basics to appeal to a wide variety of knitters and shapes of plus sizes - you will absolutely find something you will wear and look good in." - Knitty.com

"This is the collection that style-conscious plus-size knitters have been waiting for--beautiful patterns plus essential information on fit." - Library Journal
