I am starting to branch out from making scarfs,hats,bags and little stuffed animals.

I am interested in trying to make garments now. Does anyone have any suggestions for patterns?

I wear 3x/4x and the patterns i've been finding have been for XL at the biggest *Sadness*

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yay my first post here. *Waves* Tongue

I feel your pain.  They are hard to find, plus it seems the only plus size patterns I found on the interwebs are those that only a tragically unfashionable grandmother could love. 

Then along came Annie in the mail.  They aren't free patterns, but they do go from 3x-6x.  Enjoy!

Caron has a bunch of free big beautiful projects here:

If you search at Ravelry they have some cute free patterns as well. Look under "advanced search" under the Gender / Age / Size / Fit option. You'll be able to choose plus size under Fit. Happy searching.  Smiley
