Beginner cardigan
Hi all,
I had wanted to do a cabled sweater. But after swatching I decided I really dont have that much skill/patience yet.

But I still want to knit a sweater. It IS only 6 degrees today!
I have looked through pattern central and have not found waht I would like.

Does anyone have a suggestion for a simple cardigan pattern? Preferably with pockets. Also, I am not up to a full cabled cardi yet - but I would like a more challenging stitch than stockinette.

Help appreciated!

There are some nice cardigans here for puchase. They have nice details but don't look too complicated.

Oh thanks for the link. They really are nice! I like some of the details like the eyelets and such. Thank you

I had just decided to bite the bullet and take on a more challenging cable pattern. But Im going to go shopping on that site anyway. Ill pick up a "contigency" pattern - just in case my other is a complete disaster lol
