I have recently inherited enough yarn to do my first sweater. I want to do a cool cartigan, but for the life of me, I can't find a good pattern. Any suggestions? I need something relatively simple, as I've never done clothing before. I don't like cables, but I'm not opposed to them, as long as they aren't the center piece of the sweater (am I the only one that think cables can make anyone look fat?). I want something that acknowledges that I am not a rectangle. Why are all sweater patterns so boxy? Grrr.

Anyway, suggestions on where I should look? I can knit and crochet. I ADORE this sweater (http://www.anthropologie.com/jump.jsp?itemID=7782&itemType=PRODUCT&iSubCat=323&iMainCat=314 ) I probably would buy it, if anthropolgie's clothes fit my football player shoulders. Thanks!

If you go to the crochetalong page, there is a pattern that is similar.  I think it is called the bedskirt sweater or something like that.

If you have SNB, my first cardigan was the go-everywhere cardigan and I still love it. It runs quite big I found though--I suggest going smaller in sizes rather than bigger.

The TOP-DOWN RAGLAN CARDI version 2.0 is pretty basic and since it is knit from the top down you could try it on while knitting to make sure it fits well. Note that in the pattern she has a section for changes to make it a little more fitted to avoid the boxy look. I found it on craftster and there are a couple of pix in that thread.

I knew I'd seen something similar to that before, and I found the pattern. http://momcast.blogspot.com/2006/01/craftster-circular-shrug.html (I don't know why a search of craftster didn't bring this up) It would be simple to make the sleeves full length.

Here is the original discussion.
