Bad Penny on Knitty.com seems like a really simple first sweater for me to knit, plus it's something I'd actually wear!  Haha.  But I don't really feel comfortable knitting with cotton, sooo...

Would it be possible at all to knit it in worsted weight wool?  Or would switching fibers make it look completely wrong?

AND, if it's the latter, does anybody know of similar easy short sleeved sweater patterns that are knit in worsted weight wool?

Knitting a gauge swatch never hurts!  Make sure it's large enough to really get a feel for the 'drape' of the fabric, as wool will hang on you differently than cotton.

Other than that I have no advice, except that I was thinking about making it myself in a worsted acrylic (hooray for being poor).  I look forward to seeing what comes of your efforts!
