Varsity Letter Cardigan

I’m at my wits end, and hoping someone here can help. I want to knit my high school sophomore son an old-style varsity cardigan. Here’s a link to a picture of the kind of sweater I’m talking about: Varsity Sweater

I’m not enough of a designer to come up with my own pattern, and I haven’t even been able to find a classic cardigan style pattern that I can adapt (the ones I’ve found aren’t “plain” enough, don’t have the drop shoulders, no set in pockets, or something else about them I can’t work with). If anyone has anything they can offer, I’d sure appreciate it.

Thanks for any help!

Here’s one that you might be able to work with, without using the cable pattern.

I think the Wizard’s School Cardigan would be perfect.

Oh my gosh…Sandy, the Wizard’s school cardi is perfect!! I’d seen the main page describing it, and for some reason totally missed that the pattern for it was available online. I thought it was an order completed only! :doh:

Thank you for your help! And thank you as well, IndianPrincessSIP!

We were surprised to find that quite a bit of traffic is still originating from the forum so we wanted to update the link posted in one of the replies.
Free knitting patterns are now available at Harry Potter Cardigan Sweater where we post links to patterns in 4 sizes.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions. Thank you. Di at aka Hobbie’s House.
