Hi everyone! I was wondering if anyone would know of any plus sized pattern resources? I'm a plus sized woman and I would love to learn how to size knitting patterns for plus sized women. Information on any media type that might have the info and patterns would be much appreciated. Thanks very much for your help!
Here are several sites to get you started. I would also try Ravelry if you haven't already.
Hi DeniceB12, found this one for you right here on knitting daily. If link doesn't do, just type in plus sizes at top of page in search box and you can pull it up. There are a few blogs on Knitting For Plus Sizes re:
How Does Proportion Change from one size to the next?;
A Matter of Ease; Ease on In to Well Fitting Knitwear (plus a Free Pattern)
The search brought up 5 pages so it should keep you busy and hopefully answer some questions you have.
And all the women who were wise of heart spun with their hands, and they kept bringing as yarn the blue thread and the wool dyed reddish purple, the coccus scarlet material and the fine linen. Ex. 35:25
If you want patterns for plus size, www.whiteliesdesigns.com has some gorgeous ones!
I recently picked up a magazine from Knit Simple. They put out a specialty publication call Knit Plus. It is a collection of their plus size patterns. They are a collection of easy to medium skill level patterns for larger women like us that are very flattering and fun to make. It may still be available at your local book store, yarn store or anywhere the Knit Simple magazine is sold. If not, check their website, knitsimplemag.com for the issue availability.
