Hi there morning blog readers,

I am writing a quick blog to ask you a question, and before my boss sees me writing, here it is:

What would be an easy but cute sweater to knit up?

I want to make something for when I go visit my dad in November. However, the patterns I like look way to advanced for me. The patterns that are easy, well they look like they are frumpy.

What do you think? Any advice for a newb? Or should I stop whining and jump into a hard project and see where it takes me ?

    This is one that I did when I first started knitting. It was so easy. It was just two rectangles and two trapezoids for the sleeves.

    You could also try something like this. I'm not sure if it's your thing or not, but it's fast and really easy.

    Hope this helps a bit. Once you start you'll find out that it's really easy.

    Ooops...sorry..guess the links didn't find there way on to the page. Well, they were 5 hour raglan, and family of hooded sweaters. Both beginner projects.

    How about Tubey?

    I think it would be flattering on your frame, and it looks pretty simple. Its still on my to do list, though, so I can't give any practical advice about it.

    I say any that are top down...they are simple in construction and you can try it on as you go. Most of the ones from and would be good to start with.

    Have you seen Cobblestone by Jared Flood? You can see it here: and a friend knitted it with just a few changes.
