This sweater pattern is knit from the top down and is very easy as long as you follow the directions explicitly. You may want to add a few more rows for the collar and cuffs than what the pattern indicates for a deeper roll.
Knitting Pure and Simple patterns are well written and easy to follow. I have a few of them, and they are perfect for charity knitting. If you are knitting your first sweater, this is a wonderful place to start. They have a great basic sock pattern too!
Just finished the hooded version. Runs a bit small and added length because it looked short to me. However, the pattern was easy and the results were good.
Knitting Pure and Simple patterns are concise and so easy to understand.
And the service from Jimmy Beans is the best, as always.
I have knitted one of these for a gift and my great niece loved it. She likes to wear it all the time.
Knitting Pure and Simple patterns are the best. One buttonhole makes it go even quicker.
Of course, the fantastic service from Jimmy Beans makes shopping here a pleasure.
