Plus Size Crochet by Margaret Hubert

I love the patterns in this beautifully presented spiral-bound book. It is easy to keep the book flat and see exactly where you are in the pattern. The garments are lovely and fashionable. I highly recommend this book to all crochet lovers who need patterns that fit the larger woman.
