Easy, Easy Sweater pattern wanted
I's been a long time since I knit a sweater and even then I'd never heard of circular needles... so now I'm hoping to knit a basic easy sweater - pull-over or cardigan... bulky, not fitted - long sleeved.
I've been looking at the sweater patterns but so far have only found one I thought I might be able to do. Of course I've completely forgotten how to shape shoulders and things like that.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
I want to try 'knitting in the round'... and catch up with the rest of the world LOL!

The easiest to knit and to size right are top down raglan sweaters. There are pattern generators at www.knittingfool.com and at www.thedietdiary.com/blog You just put in your gauge and the chest/bust size you want and it makes a pattern for you. You can try it on wher you get to dividing the sleeves and see how it's going to fit and adjust by ripping back a few rounds or knitting a few more. Shoulder shaping is done by increasing on diagonal lines from the neck to underarm.

If you don't mind buying a $5 pattern you can't get much simpler than these.
