Here is a simple sweater that on requires a small amout of sewing. It's made in 2 pieces with chunky yarn and size 13 needles. I am about 75% finished with mine and I have only been working on it since New Years Eve. When I first looked at it I couldn't get my mind around how it would work, but when I got started I began to see the simplicity of it. I expect to have it finished this weekend or early next week. The pattern is free from Interweave.

Shanendeh: Broke. Thoroughly broke. And I was given a big bag of yarn for Christmas. I have enough to fix me for 6 or 8 months, notwithstanding a specific project (such as the cardigan I'm about to talk about).

Woodi: You can do it! You just have to be brave. The worst that can happen is that you have to start over, right? I mean, tentacled sweater-monsters won't attack you in your sleep. (yes, I have issues)

Luvmykid: Thanks for the link, I love the sweaters in there, but they're all for women.

My dad has been complaining that he can't find a cardigan anymore, only pullovers and zip-up sweaters. Have you seen any patterns for masculine cardigans? (Preferably with buttons, a V-neck, and I'm adventurous when it comes to difficulty, but simple is good and NO BOBBLES)

Caps for Good...
Hi, Sandy!

Thanks for posting this wonderful site! I've already printed out a pattern and am collecting up my acrylic yarns to rock out on these baby caps!

This is such an awesome way to use our knitting art to contribute to saving these precious little lives!

Again, here's the link if anyone wants to check it out! Please do....!

Happy knitting,

Ruthie

1) complete a cardigan
2) buy more yarn (or course)
3) use up some of my stash
4) knit more socks
5) Knit a pair of mittens
6) try new yarns
7) finish that darn Aeolian shawl
8) Attend a fiber festival
9) try 2 at a time socks
10) learn colorwork

I am terrible at keeping resolutions of any kind, so maybe if I post it here I can stay motivated.

Sorry bout that. Try this cardigan. It looks pretty simple and it's knit seamless. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...rmouth-english

If you are looking for patterns Lion Brand might have some men's cardigans. You will need to log in to see patterns, but it is free and a good source.

Well, there are lots of options for men's sweaters now. Not as many a few years ago. I think the knitting designers and publishers are finally stepping it up a notch for the guys. I'm very glad to hear it, because I knit for my hubby, my dad, my step-dad, my 4 sons, etc.

Men's knitting patterns can be found in Interweave Knits magazine every month.

Here are male cardigans on Ravelry. (some are for babies or children, so just weed through the list)

Good luck!

Wow!! Good vibrations go out to all who are finishing projects!!

I want to organize my stash so that I can get it down from four bags to one!! I only have one project on my needles so I will finish that for sure and then I will be doing some of those one skein wonders!

I love the idea of knitting caps for newborns I will get some done and send them off. I will also try to get the local school involved in a project for them.

OK, I've got some too:
knit using old plastic carrier bags. See these:

My main resolution (I started a thread here) is buying absolutely NO yarn this year. (Gift yarn is unavoidable ).

Otherwise, I'd like:
  1. to make my first wearable crochet item
  2. to make something small in entrelac just to try it
  3. write a few more patterns which are rattling around in my head
  4. make a stranded beret
  5. make stranded fingerless gloves (Endpaper Mitts)

Thanks for the link! I've been looking to make a cardi or sweater for a while now, and I think I might put one of these on my resolution list.

1. The CRAZY CARDIGAN
2. A sweater or cardigan
3. Something cute for every major holiday.
4. Get a Craft organization started at my university. Kennesaw Gets Crafty? KGC?
