Here’s a book that looks like a great choice for a public library, but I have to take issue with the models they’ve used to showcase “real” women. Most of the women pictured in this book are not plus sizes. This is a very useful book for actual plus-sized people who knit, if the patterns are actually for plus sizes. I know that the modeling industry has a pretty extreme definition of plus size, but if a book is going to specialize in plus sizes, it should fit the real world’s definition. These also seem to be mostly mature women. I’m sorry, but young plus sized women knit too! Lastly, there are patterns included for things like scarves. Aren’t scarves sort of a one-size-fits-all type of thing?
