Need a beginner sweater pattern
Okay, even though I've been knitting for over a year, the only things I've managed to make are single color, rectangles: afghans, scraves, dishcloths... I would like to try to make a sweater for my daughter (size 3T). I am very nervous about trying to knit a sweater. I started knitting over a year ago, but don't get to knit regularly due to my schedule, so even though I've been knitting for a while, I am still a beginner to easy level knitter. Can anyone suggest a first sweater pattern for a little girl's sweater? Thanks in advance!

maybe this one, just a little more complex than a rectangle, but not much.

It was my first sweater - the shaping is very simple and the pattern is easy too. Here it is on my oldest daughter:



If I could do it, you can!

My first sweater was a wonderful wallaby. It is knit in the round so there is no seaming. For me the hardest thing was the kitchner stitch on the hood but the video here helped. Occasionally I made it harder than it was for myself and I would run to my lys and say help. Thye would explain and would have my duh moment and run home and knit. It was pretty quick too.
