Seriously-- today you can rush out and buy your copy of More Big Girl Knits, which contains my pattern for the "No Gap Wrap"-- catchy, eh? (Unfortunately I can't take credit for the name.) I haven't seen the book myself yet, but if the first one is any indication, this one will be full of creative and wearable patterns, as well as lots of hints for how to choose and customize them to flatter various body types.
It's a little hard to tell from the photos, but the body of the sweater is not straight stockinette--it has a simple purl texture stitch which helps keep the knitting from being super boring (but not so complicated you can't multi task!). The diagonal lace band is meant to mimic the flattering line of a wrap-style sweater while eliminating gapping and that double layer of fabric right over the ol' belly. I swatched in Elsbeth Lavold Silky Tweed, which was replaced for the pattern with Garnstudio Silke-Tweed-- similar, but to be honest I prefer the former. I think my favorite details are the way the lace trim turned out at the back of the neck (left) and on the sleeves.
Edited to add: Knitpicks has images from inside the book: go here and then click on "view more images." I love #s 1-4 in addition to the NGW!
