A good newbie sweater pattern pls?

I've been knitting aprox 15 yrs, i'm self taught and consider myself to be a enthusiastic advanced beginner level knitter. I've never made a sweater. I 'd really love to try. Can anyone advise me of a easy to read and follow pattern to start with?

I'll be watching for the responses to this one. I'm ready to try my first sweater now too.

Its a personal thing & skills vary greatly with each person but probably the easiest options are those with minimal shaping, drop sleeves or raglan. (Set in sleeves can be a pain to sew in.)
A few ideas.
Drop sleeve
many folk would recommend the top down raglan. One here.
Most of these are good starting projects.
Many popular pattern sites have the patterns listed with skill level. from beginner to advanced.
