I would like to knit a cardigan for myself, and need advice finding on a good women's sized pattern. If I can find one, I'll tweek it to suit me. It would have to be a 1x to 2x.
I haven't made the cardigans here, but I have made a few pullovers and the patterns are well written and easy to follow. I'm not sure of sizing so you'll have to check. http://www.knittingpureandsimple.com/cardi.html
I second the knitting pure & simple patterns. They are so easy to follow. I'm just finishing my 4th sweater from one.
The pictures were beautiful! Thank you! I'm going to have to get these patterns!
This is one of my favorites, though I don't know if the 43" finished measurement would work for you: http://www.chicknits.com/catalog/cutaway.html
