*Starred Review* This is a knitting book for the plus-size females that minces no words, delivered with a large dollop of humor and no small technical and artistic wizardry. Without always referring to book number one (Big Girl Knits, 2006), Moreno and Singer reprise their design wisdom for larger women—think skim and go to waist— then add new wrinkles, er, ideas. Their real secret? Take the time to measure the three Bs (boobs, bellies, and butts) carefully and then calculate, in advance, changes in the pattern. Their advice, before the advent of the 25 new patterns, is captured in lots of sidebars, charts to use, and icons to follow (and giggle at). Thanks to the fingers of 20 talented designers, the knitwear is attractive enough for even size 8’s to drool over: a greener-than-green cabled peapod Aran jacket, socks in a variety of lengths, the latest techniques in handbags, and other lacelike, ultrafeminine (and flattering) tops. Who knew that fabby was the word for big, beautiful girls? --Barbara Jacobs

This is the Best Ever Book on knitting for the Big Girls.
There are some wonderful patterns in this book that I am actually going to use without modifying them, I like them so much Just The Way They Are. The women in the photos look great in their big girls knits, the text is highly readable (not boring) and full of advice just for us. There is a full page Yarn Yardage Chart based on type of garment, gauge, and bust measurement that I am going to xerox and put in my purse! (It will be with me for next year's Stitches West.)
To the authors, you've done a great job. This book is better than your last. I am looking forward eagerly to you next!
