This is what I wanted from the other large women knitting pattern book. The smallest size is a good size for me, and the customization instructions look do-able. The book is a celebration of hot bodies in knitwear and they separate patterns into three coded symbols for girls with large boobs, belly, or butt. I'm considered a boob girl, so I would knit things with deep necklines to show them off and flared hems to balance the top, with a lot of decreasing in the waist to show off that I actually have a waist. I think the authors of this book would hate the author of the "knit a rectangle in a yarn that will make people ignore your body" book.

My one complaint is that knitting something to fit properly is a lot more work than knitting a rectangle (C'mon science, fix this!) so it's all beyond my range for now. I will get this book out again after I have made a sweater or two and try then.
