Bombshell

Knitting
April 2006
Aran / Worsted ?
18 stitches and 24 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch, on larger needles
US 3 - 3.25 mm
US 8 - 5.0 mm
820 - 1230 yards (750 - 1125 m)
L-3X, to fit busts 42-52"

Inspired by 1940s pinup art, Bombshell has a deep, squared-scoop neckline, inverted V bodice detail, and a ripped-in silhouette.  The ribbing creates or defines a waist - whichever you need.  The raglan sleeves balance your top and the fit-and-flare shape balances the rest of you.  In fact, this fitted sweater flatters any figure.  Oh yeah?  Yeah.  We tried it on all the models in this book, and every single one of them looked amazing.  If you like things smooth, wear it with the knit side out.  Like a little texture?  Then the purl side is for you.  -- description from Big Girl Knits, pg. 93
