I really don't care for Garter stitch either. I just might give it a try. If it doesn't turn out then ,it's only yarn right, I can always frog it .
I was just worried that the yarn usage would be way off.
It's a very basic pattern. Knitting in garter up the back then left and right front panels and join at the shoulders. It connects from the armhole down to about the hip. Then there's a slit from there to the bottom on both sides to the knees.
I can't post a link to show you because someone copied it out of a magazine and and gave me a copy .
I've tried to find something similar to it online but haven't seen a pattern close enough to this one yet.
