I just wanted to give you a heads up on some patterns that were released yesterday...Cool! Gotta love a designer who thinks about the amples among us.
One of them is a shawl that I designed with plus size women in mind (i.e. myself) because triangular shawls slip and slide off my shoulders and do not wrap well around my boob-ablige. :) It is “Princess Ruffles Shawl”.
The other just released pattern that is plus sized is “Summer Waves Cardi” its sizing is XS (S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL) -34 (36, 39, 44, 46, 52, 55)” chest size.
The beautiful Princess Ruffles Shawl features a lovely lace ruffle border, stockinette body, eyelet decreases, and fitted shoulders. The shawl can be made with only 900 yards of yarn, but you can easily modify it to make the shawl larger. Best of all, Vera's Princess Ruffles Shawl is free!
And here's more good free news: Vera's new Summer Waves cardigan pattern is also available for free. Made in Cascade Yarns Ultra Pima, this raglan cardi sports a pretty lace border opening and short sleeves. Ample knitter Robebe test-knitted this sweater, and wow, doesn't she look beautiful in her rendition? I love the color, the elbow-length sleeves, and the dress underneath, too! Wonderful work. Looks like it only took her three weeks to make. Talk about a quick knit.
A hearty thank you to Vera for her attention to plus-size knitters everywhere!
