I don't know of an actual pattern, but my husband works at a book store and they have a book called "Big Girl Knits" that is supposed to be good. I don't know the author, however I'm sure if you googled it you might find something. Also, if you google plus size sweater pattern you're probably sure to find something.

I don't know HOW PLUS you need but many of the Knitting Pure & Simple patterns come in sizes up to 54 chest (XXL), not to mention that they are simple enough to add some stitches if that is not big enough.

I am "full figured" and find that simple raglan sleeve patterns are more flattering than anything else. I looked at "Big Girl Knits" and honestly didn't feel most of the patterns were very flattering for a "full figure".


This is a book I just received an email about from Lion Brand, don't know if it's any good.
