Plus Size Crochet-fashions that fit & flatter by margaret hubert

At last, a book of crochet patterns devoted entirely to the plus-size woman!
Plus-size gals are a group that seems to be neglected in the plethora of crochet books on the market. The author, Margaret Hubert, has often been approached at trade shows and through her classes by women in this size category, begging her to design patterns that would fit them. A plus-size crocheter cannot simply take a smaller pattern and increase the number of stitches or rows to get a garment that fits and flatters. There are lots of proportion considerations when designing patterns for larger sizes.
Plus Size Crochet has 20 crocheted garments and accessories for plus-size women. The projects are stylish and flattering for various large figure types. There are also hints and tips to help the crocheter accommodate her special needs.
Only crochet book for plus-size women
Similar to the books in our popular ôHookedö series: easy to use with lay-flat wire-o binding, stitch detail photos, project specs at a glance
Includes crochet basics section with step-by-step photos

my review~
I LOVE THIS BOOK! The author, Margaret Hubert put together some great patterns! While I have crocheted off & on for about 30 years, I do not read patterns very well. These are super easy (to me) patterns to read. I am having a really hard deciding which to make first, but I think (and as always I can change my mind!!) I will make the Five Yarn Jacket first (please see the photo below!!) for next fall/winter. In the back of the book, there is a section of crochet stitches, directions on how to line a crocheted bag (woohoo! I needed this) and the commonly used pattern abbriviations. I love this book and look forward to using these patterns.
