Saw it today at the LYS... Seems like it would be a good 1st sweater, but a little ouchie at $16.50 for the book. Anyone ever seen anything similar?

One Button Cardigan (http://www.tahkistacycharles.com/dyn_prod.php?p=TERSS08&k=84002&pb=TERSS08-001)

It is actually very "lacey" and open in person... looks more tweedy in the picture.

Drops (Garnstudio) has some nice cardigan patterns available on their website.

You may want to take a look there to see if anything appeals to you.

Uh huh. It'll take you a couplethree days to go through their patterns, but there should be something similar there.

Also www.berroco.com has lots of free cardis that look similar.

You know, I have this February Sweater patter saved in my faves on Ravelry too. It is fabulous isnt it? Do you think it would be a good first sweater? Im not necessarily looking for anything quick, just something that wont frustrate me. I can do all te stitches, the patterns just look so intimidating...

Thanks for the suggestion. This may be the one for me...

I did find this one on Berocco... I think I prefer the looks of the February sweater better, but this one might be easier? It is very similar to the original one I posted... Stella Sweater (http://www.berroco.com/183/183_stella.html) Any opinions which would be a better first sweater? I am pretty new knitter, but I LOVE a challenge.

The Feb sweater would be good for a first time. It's top down in one piece so there's no seams to sew up (except a few stitches at the underarm). It's a `custom fit' design - you increase it until it fits you. The Berrocco one is pretty, but there's all those pieces to sew together and a buttonband to crochet on. It would be less forgiving if you didn't get the exact gauge you need.
