I'm currently knitting just such a sweater because I hate those purls too. What I do is ignore the first and last stitch of each side of the flat pattern (they're for the seams anyway). Remember that when you do the first bind off for the armholes or sleeves, you'll be binding off one stitch less than the original pattern called for. I'm referring to a bottom up sweater here.
