Knit to Flatter is about celebrating the body you have been given and creating sweaters that make you look and feel great. Part instruction manual and part pattern collection, Knit to Flatter teaches you how to assess your shape—top-heavy, bottom-heavy, or proportional— and then knit accordingly. With a great sense of fun and acceptance, Amy Herzog presents silhouettes and styles that work with each body shape, along with four ideal sweater patterns per category. She then provides patterns for 10 more sweaters with guidelines for customizing, so they can be tailored to flatter. Each pattern is written in up to 10 sizes, and the garments are photographed by Karen Pearson on models with genuine curves. No smoke and mirrors here. Just real beauty! Softcover; 160 pages; STC Craft.
This book is a good giude to help big girls find patterns and styles that work with all body types. The skill level required varies with the project, but everyone should be able to find something that matches their level.
I'm glad I made this purchase, and anticipate using it again and again.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
