I'm having issues.
I want to knit myself a shrug, but the biggest bust measurement I can find is 40 inches.
I have issues having ALL of my clothes fit, not only because I'm plus size, but because I'm also erm...Well endowed.
Does anyone have a shrug pattern that can be adapted for a 40 inch body with a 49 inch bust?

I've wanted a shrug for a couple of years too, but it is difficult to find a pattern that I actually would wear at my bust size. (I wear like  a 22 on top, 20 in the middle, and 18 in jeans, and i feel your pain as far as the sizing issue.) I hope someone posts up some good patterns, because I too would like to make one that fits across both the front and back, and doesn't have huge sleeves, without having to totally redesign the entire pattern.  Sad

Yeah, I feel your pain there.  20 on top, 18 in the middle, and 18 in jeans. :/

You could try the Anthropologie inspired capelet - which is really a shrug or bolero. You can find the pattern in the Finished projects or Knitalong boards. It's a top down raglan and you basically try it on as you go so you increase it until it fits at the underarm. Then you can add more stitches to the body under the arm if you need that larger. Glampyre's Minisweater/Boobholder - http://glampyreknits.tripod.com/glampyrephotos/id62.html - is knit the same way. I know there's pages on how to modify that in either the KAL or FP forums too.
