I've semi-designed a sweater that I want to knit, but I'm fairly new to knitting and I don't think starting from scratch would be the best idea. So all I'm looking for is a sweater in the same shape as the one I want to make. I'd like it to be slightly off-shoulder, but without the several inches of folded-over ribbing that you often see (like this). Here's my oh-so-lovely drawing to show you what I'd like:
I've searched Knitty, did a Google search, and am now searching Knitting Pattern Central. Nothing yet. Does anyone know of a pattern, or a way around this? (I'm wondering if I could just skip a few inches of ribbing ... would that work?) Thanks!
