Katie, I thought of another pattern you might want to try to knit for yourself when you're ready for an adult-sized pattern.

"Tubey" is really cute and the process looks pretty easy, and there's no seaming! I haven't made it yet, but it's on my "gotta-try-it-one-of-these-days" list! Congrats on casting on your first sweater, too--you can do it!!!

I've tried knitting a sweater, I just never got around to seaming it ^_^;; I think that knitting sweaters is pretty simple (more simple than socks away) it's just this it's so giganticly huge that we often got daunted by it. I think it's good to knit it in steps. Like set aside an hour a day to just knit the sweater. That way you'll get somewhere without blowing your brains out from boredom

I'm loving the top down raglan sweater pattern -- it's a really simple, no seam sweater, and I've gotten great fit from it. Here's a pic of one I did:



I'm on my 4th one right now, and you can make them all look completely different. This one pictured is made with a self-striping yarn.

Craftster has a knit-along that includes a pattern on the first page, and it's really easy to follow.

Thanks! I used Martifil Stripes for that one. The one I'm currently knitting is with Caron Simply Soft that I had laying around, and that's what a lot of people on the knit-along used. I'm really liking how it's knitting up, actually. The great thing with this pattern is that you can use ANY yarn you want -- if you go with something other than worsted weight with the Craftster pattern, you will probably have to adjust the amount you cast on and the needle size you use, but after that it's smooth sailing because you try it on as you go to see when to separate the sleeves.

I've used Martifil Stripes, a cotton/ecospun yarn, Yaeger, Red Heart (which I won't use again because I hated knitting with it, but at least it's out of my stash now!), and now Caron Simply Soft, and I must say that they've turned out great with all of them. Here's a picture of the ecospun turtleneck:



I don't have pictures of the others yet.
