Fall Patterns for Fat Crafters Who Like Nice Things

Listen, it’s tough out there for a fat crafter. A lot of designers don’t seem to want our money. But fortunately, some of them do, and I’ve decided to highlight some cute fall patterns you can knit or crochet in actual plus sizes.

I’m doing my best to include as many patterns as possible that go beyond 3X. Many designers (in the crafting world and the fashion world) think 3X or size 24 is enough to give themselves a big pat on the back for how body positive they are. Don’t get me wrong, I’d rather someone go to 3X than stop at L or XL, but it’s not enough. So in promoting these fall patterns I tried to spotlight ones that go to 4X, 5X, and beyond.

Even though these are fall patterns, I’ve included a few that are lighter weight, tank or tee styles. It stays pretty hot into the fall in some places, plus you can wear them under a jacket!
