If you have curves and hips like I do, you know the frustration of trying to find a free plus size knitting pattern that will fit and flatter your body. To help with this, Lion Brand patterns have released two new free plus size crochet patterns and two free plus size knitting patterns written specifically with the curvy girl in the mind. These patterns are trendy and stylish, and offer a fit that will flatter your curves. By switching up the color choices, you can make a more playful crochet cardigan, or a more sophisticated knit tunic. Once you find the perfect plus size pattern for you, make one in your favorite color and another in a wardrobe staple neutral, and you’ll have easy choices to grab that will make you look fabulous wherever you go.
Plus Size Crochet Patterns
Finding a plus size crochet pattern that fits and has an extra bit of something special is definitely hard, but this free crochet cardigan pattern is beyond perfect. Perfect for layering over a pretty dress for a date night or even wearing in the office to keep the chill off. The fun ruffle added that special touch that makes this crochet cardigan pattern stand out from the rest.
For me, the perfect plus size sweater is tunic length so that I can wear it with a cute skirt or dress it down with a pair of jeans. This crochet tunic pattern is flattering, right down the more open stitch pattern. The flirty cowl neck makes an ordinary crochet tunic something special. I can see myself making this pattern in multiple colors for wearing in the office.
Plus Size Knitting Patterns
There is something so satisfying about leggings and a tank top worn with a comfy duster length cardigan – it’s my favorite outfit! However, when you are a curvy girl, finding one that will flatter the figure is difficult. This plus size cardigan offers the perfect touch of everything we need. Shaping while being comfy. If you’d prefer a shorter knit cardigan, you can adjust that easily with this pattern.
If you’ve got a little sass in you, this plus size knitting pattern is perfect for you. The subtle stripes of the variegated yarn give the illusion of shaping and the sassy open shoulders add the perfect amount of flair. Throw this over a cute pair of leggings and a pair of ballet flats and you are set for a day of fun. Just try not to sass too many people!
