I was hoping someone could find me the perfect pattern for my first sweater.

I would like a sweater that requires 8" or 10" needles. Also, if possible, something easy.

Thank you@!

What kind of sweater are you looking for? Cardigan or Pullover? Seamed or no seams? And... I have to say I'm not sure if you are a guy or a gal for sure. Without a name it's a tough call because avatars lie. :teehee:

Anyway..my first sweater was a top down raglan from Knitting Pure and Simple (http://www.knittingpureandsimple.com/). They are well written easy to do patterns.
They also have a "follow along tutorial" for a top down raglan.

Thanks for this tutorial--I wish I had read this before now; anyway, my first sweater was a raglan in the round from "Knitting Pure and Simple". The sweater turned out beautiful, but would have been easier had I known about this. The only problem I had was picking up stitches at the armhole neatly. But, I'm knitting another sweater with this same pattern in a different color.

Thanks again,

I haven't knitted any sweaters, but this link (http://www.woolworks.org/patterns/raglan.html) seems really helpful, this one (http://www.knittingfool.com/pages/topdown.cfm) may proove helpful aswell.
