Welcome to Curvy Month!!! A month of curvy sized vintage knitting patterns for busts greater than 34 inches.

I'd like to start the month off with something cute and easy to make - a gorgeous nautical inspired topper in a quick-to-knit yarn.

Great cardigan! I especially like how it wraps up with a solid band at the waist, giving the garment something of a belt like styling quality.

Thank you for the lovely share. I hope you guys have a marvelous weekend!
