I have a strange question... I saw a cool cardigan-like thingi in a movie (Chain Letter) and the main character was wearing it. And I reallly like it!

Soo the question is... how hard is it to make the pattern just by looking at a picture?

I have knitted socks, 2 cardigans, scarves but never like this..

I have some pics too.. but "To be able to post links or images your post count must be 2 or greater. You currently have 0 posts."

Well, this kind of thing can certainly be accomplished. As for how difficult it is, that will depend on your knitting skills, ability to visualize things in 3-D, and math skills (you'll have to apply a yarn/gauge to your creation).

If you have some pictures of what you want to make, I suggest looking for some patterns with similair shape/style. Read them over really well and become familiar with the techniques used (bottom-up, top-down, pattern, edges etc). Then either start adapting those patterns, or applying the techniques to your own pattern, to make the cardigan you desire.
Once you get something started, pattern-wise, you could certainly head to your LYS for some help in tweaking things from either the shop staff or other knitters who are just there browsing.

Yes, find patterns with a similar shape and pattern stitch and they could be adapted into what you want.

I just saw a sweater pattern generator. You put in the type of sweater you want, the yarn weight you want to use, and the size and it automatically gives you a pattern. It's at the top of this web page.
