I'm a plus-size too (16-18, depending) and I'm going to make this one for myself next.

It's very flattering and accentuates the curves (if your mom wants that?!).
Good luck

Vermont designs (http://www.vermontfiberdesigns.com/) has a large selection of sizes, as does white lies designs (http://www.whiteliesdesigns.com/), Knitting Pure and Simple (http://www.knittingpureandsimple.com/page2.html), and Oat Couture (http://www.oatcouture.com/). You might find this (http://www.ample-knitters.com/resources.html#top) helpful, too.

I've made the Donna sweater. There were some errors in the pattern, but with Ingrid's help I made it through okay!

WOW so many to look at. i'm sure i will find something for her on there.

thanks so much. living in france we really struggle to find 'nice' clothes to fit her. she has to return to the UK which is crazy. the french women being sooo thin and all (pretty much all are stick insects lol, i'm a usa size 10 (i like the usa sizes lol i'm a 12 in the uk lol))

anyway

thanks again, i will try and get my camera working again after my 3 year old 'helped' me clean up and smashed it :rollseyes:

I know Im coming late to the party here but I just finished the parts for a sweater out of a leisure arts book calle Fashion-Plus Knits(#3525). They are more, basic I guess is a good word, patterns. A little older then some of the patterns listed above. They are simple to knit as well and I think are flattering.
