Sweater for a large size lady
This sweater I made for myself, but I looked like the wreck of the hesperas as my mom used to say when my dh took it so I cropped it so all you see pretty much is the sweater and the scarf I am wearing with it to my grandson's Cub Scout banquet tomorrow night. It is a nice summer pattern that adapts to a large woman. It is Caron Simply Soft/Soft Country Peach.

SS is my favorite of the cheaper acrylics. Sweater looks great!

That is very pretty and looks like it fits you well. I am plus size too and it is hard to find patterns that are suitable and that I want to knit. Have fun at the banquet!
