ok i need help...

i'm in search of an oversized 80'd off the shoulder sweater pattern... a friend of mine wants to make one has no clue how to knit so i figured the best place to start is with a pattern so that we can figure out what stitches she needs to learn...

the type of sweater is like this...



PLEASE HELP ME!

any help is appreciated! just please if you can find free patterns they are better cause i refuse to order patterns from online because i'm told i have to teach her after exams and those are in 2 weeks......

if you can help please link me to patterns perhaps?  Undecided i would appreciate it so much because i'm having no luck....

those are great patterns but i guess she figured she shouldn't be so ambitious so now she just wants to buy fabric and sew one. much easier for me because i can sew just fine and the pic i posted looks like it is sewed

They were basicly t-shirts or sweat shirts with the neck removed and shoulder seam opend. Buy a cheap one from a thrift store and have a go. Wink Alot of unfinished edges in the 80's.
