Family Circle Easy Plus-Size Knits: 50 Knit and Crochet Styles
by Trisha Malcolm

It can be extremely difficult to adjust knitting patterns to larger sizes. Family Circle Easy Plus-Size Knits strives to solve this problem with 50 patterns for sizes up to 3X. Many types of patterns are offered including pullovers, cardigans ponchos, and vests.

We were surprised to find how few of the patterns included were for crochet -- only a few, given the book's title. Good for knitters, but this would disappoint any crocheter who purchased the book. But we liked the variety and number of knitting patterns and have begun knitting the pullover on the cover in a red yarn.
