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.

About the Author:

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.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* This is a knitting book for the plus-size females that minces no words, delivered with a large dollop of humor and no small technical and artistic wizardry. Without always referring to book number one (Big Girl Knits, 2006), Moreno and Singer reprise their design wisdom for larger women—think skim and go to waist— then add new wrinkles, er, ideas. Their real secret? Take the time to measure the three Bs (boobs, bellies, and butts) carefully and then calculate, in advance, changes in the pattern. Their advice, before the advent of the 25 new patterns, is captured in lots of sidebars, charts to use, and icons to follow (and giggle at). Thanks to the fingers of 20 talented designers, the knitwear is attractive enough for even size 8’s to drool over: a greener-than-green cabled peapod Aran jacket, socks in a variety of lengths, the latest techniques in handbags, and other lacelike, ultrafeminine (and flattering) tops. Who knew that fabby was the word for big, beautiful girls? --Barbara Jacobs
