Hi, everyone!

I've semi-designed a sweater that I want to knit, but I'm fairly new to knitting and I don't think starting from scratch would be the best idea. So all I'm looking for is a sweater in the same shape as the one I want to make. I'd like it to be slightly off-shoulder, but without the several inches of folded-over ribbing that you often see (like this (http://www.coatsandclark.com/fun_and_free/yarn/womans_day_mag/lt1415.htm)). Here's my oh-so-lovely drawing to show you what I'd like:

I've searched Knitty, did a Google search, and am now searching Knitting Pattern Central. Nothing yet. Does anyone know of a pattern, or a way around this? (I'm wondering if I could just skip a few inches of ribbing ... would that work?) Thanks!

did you see this pattern (http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter04/PATTtempting.html) from knitty? It looks like it could work if you made the sleeves longer.

She gives a lot of room to play with the pattern.
