Book Description

1 July 2008
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Colourful curves 29 Aug 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Loved this book, the patterns and garments are beautiful although I think it is aimed at the younger 'Big Girls' I will definitely knit some things from this book. My only disappointment is that most patterns are explained using a chart, which I have not used before and it is assumed that one knows how to use charts. It would have been useful to know that the book is American, that the sizes, yarns and needle sizes are American and that the patterns are all on charts.

I just love this book. It leads you through resizing, how to find your style, how to make the most of your body shape.Even if you never knit any of the patterns it is a bible for any 'big girl'

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Girl Knits is a BIG hit with us 26 Jan 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Big Girl Knits is a knitting book for us bigger girls sizes from Large to 5X.
It is full of patterns that you'd wear every day.
Coming from a family of large ladies this was a must for me. As soon as the ladies in my family had a look they have had me knitting non-stop since.
My personal fav is the hooded cable jacket.
Lovely and warm and looks wonderful on..., I've knitted it in red, as shown in the book, and black.
There are a lot of hints and tips for us bigger girls on what to wear, what not to and how to adapt garments to your size, my family and I found it really informative.
All I can say is; Best knitting book ever......., whole heartedly recomend. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Girl Knits 5 May 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this edition together with the original Big Girl Knits. And am very happy. There are project ideas as well as the really important information about how to properly take your measurements, and how to adjust your (any) patterns to create an item that really fits your shape. Not just important for knitting clothing for big girls in my opinion.
Clear instructions and templates included (you could photocopy if you dont want to write in the book) for working out all the mathamatics.
