I have a good number of knitting needles (mostly US8s -- 1 set of US8 circs and 1 set of US8 dpns, along with 2 or 3 sets of straights), so I'll likely be using those. I also have a few full skeins of Caron Simply Soft, with enough spare change to go get more if need be. Not the best yarn, I know, but woe to the college-kid budget. Also, I am an intermediate knitter, with a decent range of skills. I do not have ANY seaming skills, and I don't really want to use this project to learn it because of my self-induced time constraint.
Any ideas for a good pattern? It doesn't necessarily have to be a pullover-type sweater. If the pattern is easy enough to understand and there's no seaming involved, a cardigan or vest would also be fine. Or even something that requires you to wear something underneath (but I don't do shrugs, they just aren't really my stye).
I'm thinking top-down raglan would probably be best, but I'm not entirely sure if I completely understand how the "pattern" was written or how to go about modifying a couple of things.
Bring it on!
