Curvy Knits

Plus-Size Knitting

with Marly Bird
Knitters of every size and shape will gain wisdom from Marly, who shows you how to change stitch counts to address any shaping issue.

Are you a plus-size knitter? Tired of spending hours of work, and mega yarn bucks, to make sweaters that just don't look good on you? Knitwear designer Marly Bird created Curvy Knits: Plus-Size Knitting just for you. You'll learn how to adjust your patterns to make custom-fit garments, and find the best styles, design features, yarns and stitch patterns to fit and flatter the plus-size woman. Marly's humor and warmth make it fun!
