I've heard the patterns from Knitting Pure and Simple are well written, translation: easier to follow for a beginner. You may want to take a look at their site to see if anything appeals to you: http://knittingpureandsimple.com/

This was my first pullover. They also have a more fitted version now on the main page of the sweaters.

Well you can check the link in my signature to find acceptable photo sizes and how to post it.

Not sure what you mean by the first sentence though. You mean you have a picture and you want to make a sweater like that? If it's online somewhere you can just post a link.

Wow, you ARE ambitious, cutiepie....starting with a sweater as your first knitting project! Most people I know begin with a dishcloth or scarf.
But it looks like you've come to the right place for encouragement and help. Good luck!

You are much braver than I. I spent nearly 20 years just making blankets, because they were square shaped. Then I jumped into making Christmas stockings, then branched out from there. The folks here at KH are some of the most knowledgeable people I've met. And Amy's videos are very, very helpful. So, welcome and you've come to the right place.
