This week I’ve been busy reworking my Delancey Cardigan pattern in five new plus sizes (yay!). I’ve posted it for sale here at knitdarling and on my Ravelry page.
I was inspired to do this because of the upcoming knit-along sponsored by Allyson Dykhuizen at her Sweat Shop of Love blog. A nice lady who wanted to participate wrote me to see if I could help her modify the pattern to a plus size. I thought I’d do one better!
I’m publishing this pattern separately for several reasons. Most importantly, because it’s not just the same pattern in bigger sizes. I’ve done some research on grading for plus sizes, and have learned that they work differently than their smaller counterparts. While the end result will look just like the original Delancey, the instructions are different, and the fit is intended to flatter a different type of body.
I hope to get some pictures soon of one of the plus sizes, so please stay tuned for that!
I’m so curious, what are some of your favorite plus size designs/designers? What do you look for in a plus size pattern that some designers just don’t seem to get? I’d love to hear your opinions, so please leave a comment below!
