I am wanting to start a sweater for myself. I want something that is big and comfy and super easy. I really like this one from Knitty, http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall02/PATTtopsecret.html but the bulkiness of the neck bugs me. I generally dont like anything on my neck.
Any suggestions? I wouldn't mind paying for a pattern if it is "THE ONE".
Knitting Pure and Simplehas some wonderful, easy patterns! My first one was the women's #9724.
Modifying this pattern would be pretty easy. After you finish the yoke, just purl an inch or so to make a rolled neckline, similar to what the bottom hem has.
These were listed under Berroco as "Easy" and look pretty comfy to me.DoreenKatieMarissaKendraSandyClaireHeidiKateJilLolaMy First Summer Tunic (I almost renamed this one "Sarah", but decided against it :teehee: )Hope that helps!
Yeah, you wouldn't have to make the Topsecret neck so big, just stop when it's a normal neckline.
Here's another bulky sweater on Knitty:http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter03/PATTbanff.html
And there's a similar sweater on the Lion website that is a bit more fitted:http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/60629.html
There is also a patterned stitch sweater there as well:http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/661.html
