Big Comfy (easy) Sweater Ideas
Hi!

I am wanting to start a sweater for myself. I want something that is big and comfy and super easy. I really like this one from Knitty, http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall02/PATTtopsecret.html but the bulkiness of the neck bugs me. I generally dont like anything on my neck.

Any suggestions? I wouldn't mind paying for a pattern if it is "THE ONE".

Thanks!

Knitting Pure and Simple has some wonderful, easy patterns! My first one was the women's #9724.

Modifying this pattern would be pretty easy. After you finish the yoke, just purl an inch or so to make a rolled neckline, similar to what the bottom hem has.

These were listed under Berroco as "Easy" and look pretty comfy to me.

Hope that helps!

Yeah, you wouldn't have to make the Topsecret neck so big, just stop when it's a normal neckline.

Here's another bulky sweater on Knitty:

And there's a similar sweater on the Lion website that is a bit more fitted:

There is also a patterned stitch sweater there as well:
