Plus Size Patterns
I am a new knitter and would love to know if any of you have done any plus size patterns for women? I have seen a few books on-line but would like input on what books/patterns other people like.

Thank you so much!!

I've not done any, but I have found some very nice patterns @ Oat Couture, Vermont Fiber Designs and my fave is White Lies Designs :D

I noticed a lot of the patterns in the Creative Knitting magazine also have plus sizes included.
