I originally bought this Lion-Brand Thick and Quick to make something from Twinkle's book. The patterns are extremely vague, and the sweater I'd previously made from it made me look like a marshmallow.

So- I designed this!


Lion brand Thick and Quick:
US 15's,
2 stitches per inch.





 
The pattern can be found on my blog, directly here: http://sarahknitsnotnever.blogspot.com/2008/02/self-designed-sweateri.html

enjoy, email me if you have any questions.

It would be way easier to just learn circulars. That way you can try on the sweater as you go to see if it fits right. if you need help with knitting in the round, just go to www.knittinghelp.com. There are a bunch of tutorials that show a ladies hands actually doing it! It's way easier than you think. Let me know how it goes!

Very nicely done - both the pattern and the sweater.  I love these "formula" patterns - lets the knitter be very creative but gives you enough information to make something that looks reasonably like a sweater! 

I agree with your statements on circular knitting.  I learned basic circular (knitting in the round, on one circular needle) from knittinghelp, which I think is one of the best sites for learning to knit.  But, I learned how to knit with two circular needles (small diameter circular knitting) from watching the Cat Bordhi videos on Youtube.  You wouldn't need the small diameter part for this sweater, unless you wanted longer sleeves.  But, the CB videos are a hoot, even if you don't plan to try!

I love this!  I've bookmarked your pattern and am definitely going to give it a try once I finish my current WIPs.

I love it!  I think this might be my first sweater.  I read through the pattern and it seems really straight forward, which I love.  Thanks for posting the pattern!

Your welcome. To make it bigger/smaller, just repeat the increase round until it fits you. I added waist decreases and increases for the hips at the side markers.

Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

This is a fantastic sweater and looks very easy to do, I bookmarked your pattern, I think I will try this Wink I may use something other than thick n quick, but I've never tried a sweater before, so hopefully this will be my first!
Thank you for sharing!

Thanks for sharing your pattern! Congrats on such a fantastic design.

I'm going to get started right away - I've got some leftover balls of Lion Brand in my stash...somewhere...
