I am loving Big Girls Knit. Currently, I’ve thrown Bombshell onto my needles for the Knitting World Cup.
I had to substitute yarn and chose Debbie Bliss Cotton Angora for it. Probably a poor choice since the angora is fluffing like crazy all over my clothes while I knit it, however its looking nice so far.
I am totally sick of seeing patterns for smaller sizes. It isn’t so much that they are for smaller sizes but for people with smaller chests. Is the average maximum size REALLY a 38" chest (in Jaegar’s world it is)?
I have only recently taken knitting back up, but I am incensed at how many gorgeous patterns I find, only to have to just groan and shove it back on the shelf when I see the maximum size is 36" or 38". I am not nearly experienced enough to design my own or even work out how to make these patterns bigger.
I’ve been looking for a resource to tell me HOW to make patterns bigger. The trouble then of course is, the shape might not be right in bigger sizes - is this why they don’t do the patterns in bigger sizes?
I am not HUGE but I do have a 46" chest at the widest part. I am determined to learn how to adapt patterns or how to at least design patterns for us larger ladies.
It is now my mission in life, to find out how to do it so that I can post something somewhere easily accessible so other ample knitters can know how too!
