Other than "Knitting Lingerie Style", are there any other books out there that may have a broader size range? I was reading some reviews about this book in particular and it said it was only 32A-38D...I'm a bit off the charts but want to make some sort of negligee garment, and I loved the patterns that were in KLS. Any other similar ones?

I'd like an answer to this question too, I'm between a 40G and a 40H, and there's like...NOTHING around that I've seen in patterns.

I had to laugh because when I was reading the reviews for that book on Amazon someone was saying what a large size range it had... Roll Eyes

What about Naughty Needles?

What might be helpful is going on to Ravelry.com and search the patterns for the books, then look through the project comments (people sometimes put sizing, mods, etc.)  I know a couple of groups have been started for some of the books, so you might find the comments you're looking for there, too.

Cornbread is square, but pi is round.

Wanted to mention that while I haven't tried any of it yet (hey, I'm still on scarves and hats and stuff that's easy) I have heard many people on the Bust Line group on Ravelry suggest getting Big Girl Knits and use the modification advice on just about anything.

As a 36G, I can pretty much state that I plan to make several patterns out of Naughty Needles and don't expect to have to do much modifying.  I'm especially looking forward to "Felt Up", the corset.  Have the yarn an' everything.

The problem that I come across is I have to make the torso really tiny for any kind of undergarments but then have bigger cups so the bottom of the cups ends up looking wacky.

I couldn't do any searches on Ravelry. Do I have to have an account?
