sweater pattern for a fine guage yarn?
 
I have loads and loads of yarn that would knit well on a size 3 or 4 needle, and I was thinking about doing a striped sweater in it, maybe a hoodie. Any simple sweater patterns that would work for yarn of that type?

The only one I can think of that uses thin yarn and small needles is Thermal, at knitty.com, but it's not striped, nor a hoodie. You can take a pattern you like and maybe make the largest size, or convert their st numbers to inches and then knit according to the measurements.

I recently bought the Jaeger Pattern Book 35, which all use their Jaeger Siena yarn - a "4-ply", which is between a DK and a fingering weight, and uses about a 3-4 neelde. Here's a link to the patterns - most are basic stockinette stitch, and pretty classic patterns. https://homepages.force9.net/ethknit...atterns-14.htm
