Resources for design.
So I'm starting to get tired of knitting other people's patterns. I think I would like to start designing my own patterns and things. I was wondering if anyone knew of any resources on how to design your own patterns.

The things that I am most concerned with are things like fit and proportions. For example, how long should the body of a bottom up sweater be before you start the arm holes. I've never sewn anything so the idea of construction is not something I'm greatly familiar with, other than following other people patterns.

I don't think that I need help with getting differnt pattern embellishment ideas. I have tons of patterns on how to make leaves, or lace, or cables. I need something that is going to show me how to make an actual garment and what the proportion and construction should be. I hope that I'm making sense. Any ideas?
