i've already looked at some free sweater pattern sites online, and i couldn't find what i was looking for, so i'm asking here. i need a pattern for a men's shawl-collared cardigan. it seems that men's patterns are few and far between.

ok, so i'm looking for something like this

but without cables. i'd prefer something free online, or failing that, in a book, so i can get it at my library.

thanks muchly

I've looked everywhere for you, and I can't find one either! I thought a simple shawl neck cardigan would be easy to find. Here are some ideas for you, although the first 2 aren't free:

http://www.vintageknits.com/men1.html - many shawl neck pullovers.
http://www.lambsearfarm.com/patterns.htm - look all the way at the bottom of the page under the "Sarah James" patterns. There is one called "Shawl Collar Coat" that might work.
http://knitting.about.com/library/weekly/aa101297.htm - a free pattern for a women's sweater you could modify, although the directions for the collar don't seem very good. It doesn't even say how many sts to pick up!

I hope you find what you're looking for!  Smiley

The picture you posted looks like the collar is done in k1p1 rib, with increases every few rows.  You could easily adapt an existing V-neck cardigan pattern to have this collar.  This one looks like the band up the front that turns into the collar is 16 sts wide (k1p1*Cool  when it starts to be the collar you increase 2 sts about every 4 or 6 rows about 6 sts in from the edge, keeping the ribbing pattern going.  It looks like you do this double increase at least 10 times, but of course how many times and how often would depend on your gauge.

I would think that this particular collar is done in two pieces ( one attached to each front) and then grafted together at the back of the neck and sewn down to the back of the sweater.

experiment, it's fun!
