Yes it's very tough finding a beginner to intermediate pattern that is just plain with pockets. Most have lace or strange collars or fancy cables or not the right size. Also when I start reading the pattern why can't they write out the entire pattern. They alway put the instructions for the left front side then say start right side reversing the shaping. Well depending on the pattern that can be very very confusing when you're not an expert knitter.
Thank you for all your help everyone!
