Hello, all you plus-size knitting folks! :)
It's Summertime! So, that means it's time for another report. Our winner this month is Interweave Knits, who has provided a lovely vest pattern, with a 59 inch bust.
And here's that design - The Planche Vest
They had some other great patterns, as well, so I'm gonna list them all here:
Dawn Dress - up to 57 inch measurement under bust
(I think that some of us might need to add a bit to the top edge of that bra section, so we don't spill out for the whole world to see.)
Bethany Wrap - up to 56" chest
Flynn Cardigan - up to 54" chest
Seaglass Shell - up to 53" chest
Coquette Vest - up to 53" chest
Men's Herringbone Vest - up to 54" chest
Knitscene - (Summer 2012) has some nice plus-size designs this season as well.
Merida Pullover - up to 57" chest
Quinn Sweater - up to 56" chest
Kenzie Tee - up to 53" chest
(This one is assymetrical)
Knit 'n Style (August 2012) has gained some of our favor this time, because they have a design with sizing up to 4X! That's a real accomplishment, because usually they only go up to 2X. Thanks, Knit 'n Style! :)
Knit Silk Vest - up to size 4X
(They also have a crochet version that goes up to the same size)
End of Summer Capelet - up to size 3X
Cropped Jacket - up to size 3X
Love of Knitting (Summer 2012) lost our love this time, because they only have ONE design that goes up to size 3X. :( Did you forget about us? Boo Hoo........
Lacy Cable Vest - up to size 3X
Creative Knitting (July 2012)
Pender Vest - up to size 3X
Knitting Magazine (UK) - Issue 103 - June 2012
That pretty design on the cover is called "Shale Lace Top", and goes up to a 52" chest.
YARN (Australian) Vol 12, Issue 25
Garden Party Cardi - up to size 3X
Man's Jumper with Cabled Yoke & Sleeves - up to 142 cm chest (55.9")
That's all of it! There were some size 2X designs, but I decided to stick with 3X and over again this time.
See you all next time. :)
