Design + knit sweaters that fit + flatter!

Knitting Plus is the must-have manual for plus-sized sweater construction and knitwear design. With this helpful guide, you'll learn how to design wearable, tailor-made sweaters.

With Knitting Plus, you'll explore basic pullover and cardigan sweater construction styles from raglans and set-in sleeves to drop shoulders, seamless yokes, and dolmans. Knitting Plus explains each specific sweater element and then offers key tips for plus-sized knitting. Included throughout are simple versions of each construction type as easy-to-reference templates so you can quickly adapt and alter each sweater for a custom fit.

An invaluable reference about fit and shape, Knitting Plus includes 18 irresistible designs by a variety of designers including Mandy Moore, Lisa R. Myers, Lou Schiela, Katya Wilsher, and Kathy Zimmerman, as well as Lisa's designs. Each pattern offers a broad range of sizes and instructions for bust sizes from about 44 to 56 inches. Packed with design information and ready-to-knit patterns, Knitting Plus is your go-to technique and design reference for customizing patterns to fit all sizes.

About the Author:

Lisa Shroyer is the editor of Knitscene magazine. She has also worked as the patterns editor for Interweave Knits and Knitscene magazines since 2005, where she has witnessed thousands of knitting patterns and all possible permutations of sweater construction. A life-long knitter, she has combined her expertise and her eye for design with a passion for knitting for plus sizes in Knitting Plus, her first book. She lives in North Carolina.

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,t Large blog

04 >"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
