I would classify myself as a beginning knitter, and very much a plus sized girl. I would also classify this book as fantastic. I've made the Yo! Ga Pants and Bombshell as well as the Boobalicious tank and all of them came out fantastically. I love the extra information in the front of the book about how to resize and adjust patterns as well as her classifications for the rounder body types. I have a large bust size and a belly problem but no butt so seeing the patterns that helped with that classified in such a way really helped me decide which patterns to make. The instructions were incredibly clear (especially for short rows) and I had no trouble even as a beginner following them. The only complaint I have is that several of the "boob girl" patterns are very short lengthwise, though it is very easy to lengthen them. Some of the yarns are no longer manufactured but the owner of my local yarn store easily helped me to locate equivalencies, and when he didn't know a quick check on Ravelry to see which yarns other people had used definitely helped. Overall the patterns helped me to be more adventurous with the clothing I wear and really helped me learn fitting in knitting. Very much recommend!
Wonderful sweaters for full-figured gals. I got one for myself and one for a friend as a present. The author offers designs for every type of full figure and has how to adapt these or other patterns if a woman's figure is fuller in certain areas. The models are realistic. They wear sweaters from the sizes given, not skinny gals with big sweaters pinned in back. The mood is fun and light-hearted, and makes the reader/knitter feel good about her (ahem) assets. Yeah!!
I did read all the reviews and took a chance.
Pros - patterns for "curvy" figures that might be adaptable for a project.
Cons - not really pretty patterns; way too fitted; way to low cut for me. I must agree with another reviewer that none of the patterns were especially flattering to any of the models, in either style or color.

And, a personal peeve - did no one at these photo shoots have a hairbrush......? All that big, messy hair just overwhelmed the pretty girls featured. Bottom line - if you are over 40 and/or never go "clubbing", these designs aren't going to be very helpful.
My copy of this book is probably going to the library. Disappointing......
This book is fantastic. It gives good explanations about what to accentuate and what to avoid in terms of plus-size knit wear. It describes how to make sure you get the right fit for your body type (boobs, belly, or butt). And it has patterns for really pretty fashions that will flatter -- and celebrate -- the plus-size figure. These are not straight up-and-down, boxy designs that you get in a lot of "full figure" knitting books.

I think all of the patterns in the book are good! My favorites are the fitted tank top, the cherry-patterned "swing jacket" sweater, and the low-cut "wrap around" sweater, which is worthy of a good push-up bra (Lane Bryant sells some very nice full-figure push-up bras).

This is not a book for wet-behind-the-ears beginners. Right now, I'm still practicing getting my knitting scarves to come out straight, so I would not attempt to make anything in the book without supervision. My next step will be to take a knitting class and use one of these patterns for my project. It will be helpful to have the instructor's advice.

Oh -- one more plus! They use "real" plus-sized women as sweater models -- not size 10's masquerading as full-figured women.
After reading about the book on Ravelry, I had to purchase it.

As a basically P shaped person, I'm all heavy on top and nothing down below. I've really struggled to figure out how to alter patterns to make them work.

The book has a fantastically detailed tutorial on what to do that makes the purchase of this book worth what it costs and more. The way they walk you through each technique is what I definitely needed - detailed, technical and yet written in a way that its light in tone and interesting. You won't find any boring snippets in this book!

I wasn't so keen on the patterns in the book - many would look odd on my shape, but I think they are useful visuals to illustrate what is talked about in the technique sections. I was also impressed with the designers, everyone from Shannon Okey to the woman behind White Lies Designs.

I would totally recommend this book to anyone looking to knit who has fit issues with average clothing. Even if you're skinny, the techniques in this book stand to good use by anyone.
The plus-sized women's world is divided into the three B's: Boobs, Bellies, and Butts, according to this book. They're right and I'm a Boob.

There are many patterns in this book for us Boobs. And while I embrace my cleavage, the world may not be ready for this 48 year-old to rock the lacy Sexy Ribs Pullover or the wrap sweater called Lift and Separate without a cami underneath - perhaps Cherry Bomb (which I can see making over and over). Page after page of gorgeous and eminently wearable in this book, true plus-sized models, luscious colors, informative and clear text.

Only Amelia Corset is unflattering to the entire universe, even my size 4 daughters. Nothing adds poundage like dividing a gal horizontally 3 times (bust and arms, tummy, and whatever bottom you wear with).

That's the one pit in this yummy box of goodies. Buy the book and when we see each other on the street in our beautiful Big Girl knits, let's wink. We'll already be smiling.
