I need your help One of my goals for 2008 is to take my knitting to the next level (i.e. move past scarves) and finally knit my first sweater. I’m still pretty new at increases and decreases, but I’m not above asking for any help that I need.
Anyhoo, I’m looking for just the right pattern for my first sweater and who better to ask than my hello forum-ites! Obviously, I want to make something that I know I am going to wear, so that means that it will probably need to have long sleeves. My measurements are 35" chest and 25" waist, which I know is a bit more curvy than most patterns use, so I’m sure I will have some adjusting to do ahead of me. Also, I will be making the sweater out of organic cotton (wool is very warm but itchy ).
I already have the first two Stitch n Bitch books, and a few other knitting tomes, but most of the patterns in their look so foreign and, well, intimidating. I’m open to any and all suggestions, so bring them on! :woot:
