Did you try www.knittingpatterncentral.com? Look for the ones that say "basic" or even "easy". The one I like is a raglan, knitted from the top. Just plain jane but nice especially if you use nice yarns!

Hi,

I would suggest checking out your local library for Ann Budd's Knitter's Handy Book of Sweater Patterns.  It provides tables you can use to make basic sweater styles (cardigan included) for any gauge and size.

I had the same problem finding a basic pattern when I wanted to make my husband a cardigan. I ended up using a men's top down raglan pattern from Knitting Pure and Simple.  They also have this same pattern for children and adults.  The pattern was for a sweater, but I just didn't do it in the round (leaving it open in front), and added a placket in front for a zipper (using the same method that I'd used in a Bonne Marie Burns' Ribby Cardigan for myself).  I'm not 100% satsified with the way the zipper meets the neck on this sweater--but no one else notices.  He really likes it, wears it a lot, his co-workers think I've got a magic wand hidden somewhere that I use for such things--so I'd count it as a success.

Good luck!
