Hi everyone this forum has bee a tremendous help so far for me so I decided to ask for help again. I would like to branch out from just knitting very simple bags and scarves I would like to knit my very first garment a sweater....I am moving from the caribbean to the UK which for me is a huge thing the lowest temperature we get here is between 20-25 degrees celsius so I am trying to prepare myself with some warm clothing......so anyone with begginer sweater patterns for a plus size person i would be eternally grateful......Thanks in advance...

Here are some I found, I don't know what your taste is, but they look warm and go up to 60' chest and are all easy. Have fun.

I've found that Creative Knitting magazine often has patterns for plus-size sweaters and many of their patterns are pretty easy. I can't find any photos to post, but I've found everything from pullovers to cardigans in sizes up to at least 3X. This site http://www.magazinecity.net/9776-6.html has an option for international delivery of the magazine, if you decide to subscribe. I let my subscription lapse and have regretted it.
