Lauren has increased her original size range to 61.5″ hip (67.5″ finished measurements), which is great!
In this version I left off the patch pockets at the rear and also “drafted” a slightly larger pocket and pocket facing so that I can jam my hands and extra stuff in there too. See below for my first-rate “drafting”

Although I didn’t make these sweaters, I’m posting them because they are a much loved part of my wardrobe that’s handmade, just not by me.
This is one of the cardigans that my grandma knitted for herself many years ago out of our merino wool which she spun herself. Fortunately, we were basically the same size so I won a couple of her cardigans and sweaters.
This is another sweater that was knitted by my Grandma for herself that I’m able to wear. It has lovely colour work and while brown, pink & teal seem like strange colours to me, somehow it works.
I’ve been on the hunt for free plus size sewing patterns for beginners and have accumulated quite the list! In order to avoid over-saturation I’m going to release a list of 10 twice a week until I run out. I hope there will be plenty to inspire you!
