Need pattern for child's sweater
I have 660 yds of Cascade 220. The gauge is 5 sts per 1" on size 7 and 4 1/2 per 1" on size 8. Does anyone have an easy chidl's sweater (neutral enough for a boy) pattern that would meet this gauge?

I'm don't have enough experience to "mix and match" needles and gaguges.

Thanks so much for your help.

I found this
Getting gauge is just knitting a 4x4 swatch with different needles and yarn.Just because it says size 7or 8 needle doesn't mean the sweater will be the right size.Everyone knits at different tensions so you HAVE to do a swatch to get the right Gauge for the sweater to fit.
Here it will tell you how to get gauge
Hope all this helps
