Need a book recommendation
My youngest daughter is 11 and I'm trying to find knitting books for SIMPLE sweaters for her size. The Yarn Girls have wonderfully simple patterns, but their sweaters in the kids books are too small for her.

Any ideas/recommendations for patterns for tweens/teens?? With simple patterns/directions, please.

Thanks!

She's currently wearing size 10/12 or size 12.

I like the Yarn Girl's Guide to Knits for Older Kids by Julie Carles/Jordana Jacobs. But, according to amazon.com, the patterns in this book are for sizes 4-10. Something with patterns like this only for sizes 12-14 and even up to 18 would be great!!!

Thanks!
