a sweater to knit for my dh's little grandson... top down or bottom up, on circulars. I've been hunting and hunting and have found nothing.
He's just turning 1 but he is big for his age (and a sweetie to boot). I'm looking for something very simple, nothing fancy - I plan on fancy-ing it up with different yarns.
A nice little roll collar would be great!
Thanks,

Roll neck...do you want a pullover then? Lots more if you would be willing to do a different neck.

No it doesn't need to be a rolled neck edge... it just looks like an easy thing to do but I'm willing to try anything, even a cardigan, if I can do it top down or bottom up on my circulars. :)

I love the look of this (http://www.pickles.no/oh-handsome-sweater/) simple shawl collar pullover ... I have it bookmarked to try sometime in the future.

All of the other ones below that I found are relatively simple looking and could easily be customized like you mentioned by using different colors, yarns, etc.

Hopefully some of these might give you some ideas ... it's a little hard without knowing more specifically what you have in mind!

Good luck! :knitting:

Here's a few simple ones that can be knit on circular needles (I think). The problem is may of the patterns have stitch patterns. :zombie:

Glad you liked them and hope they work for you. One thing you might also do is look deeper into the Petite Purls site. They have some really cute free patterns.
