I just finished a book called The Sweater Workshop, and the author based this technique on" EZ" Elizabeth Zimmerman's patterns. It has you make a sweater "sampler" which not only teaches basics like ribbing, increasing and decreasing, but also button holes, 2 different pockets, belt loops, and more, and then there's a chart that you can use to figure out how much yarn you need, etc etc etc. It's a GREAT book; the suthor (somthing Dee?) said she wrote it because she loved knitting w/o tears so much and wanted to expand on the seamless sweater idea.
