with Marly Bird
Have you ever spent time and yarn money to knit a sweater that you never wear because it stretched, or feels funny, or makes you look massive? Designer and plus-size lady Marly Bird feels your pain.
In Curvy Knits: Plus-Size Knitwear, you'll select the perfect pattern for your shape, and make easy fit adjustments to bust, sleeves, neckline and other trouble spots. You'll discover delicious yarns that make great plus-size clothes, and the ones that fail every time. And you'll learn how to transform swatching from a boring chore into a valuable tool. You'll use your favorite sweater, right out of your closet, to tell you things you never knew about yourself. And you'll make your very own custom-made dress form ... from duct tape! Get advice and help from Marly as you learn the same techniques knitwear designers use for a perfect fit and finish every time.
