It lshould not be grow into but shrink into)

I knited all my sweaters from the time I was in the 250 pound range with no problems. What you can do is find a pattern you like and make it 2-3 times smaller. remember to check your gauge as that is going to be most important in getting it to a good size.

Books like Big girl knits, more big girl knits, Knits plus and lots of others designed for larger size bodies are great places to start. look at your body type for the best that will work when you loose weight.
look also on ravelry.com, crystalpalaceyarns.com (They have a section just for plus sizes) and knittingpatterncentral.com for suggestions.

Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place. The time spent riding the bus each day? That's a pair of socks over a month. Waiting in line? Mittens. Watching TV? Buckets of wasted time that could be an exquisite lace shawl. ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much A true friend reaches for your hand but touches your hea

Here's a question for you all. Have any of you started a knitting project, a sweater for example, that you are making in a size that you expect to grow into after you lose weight?

I have been knitting for 6 years or so and because I'm 300+ pounds, I haven't made a sweater for myself. I was wondering if anyone has made a smaller sweater to use as motivation to help you lose weight. If so, did it work? Did it fail?

I love the idea of starting a sweater that might take me a few months to finish and by then, I would lose enough weight to fit into it.

Any feedback any of you might have would be great to hear!
