Need a pattern for a sweater
Hi, my name is Sean. I'm new to knitting and new to this site. My first three projects were a scarfing disaster a hatting bad job and finally a sucessful hat with a k2 p2 from start to finish. Well now that I've patted myself on the back for the last day and a half I'm would like to knit a simple stitch sweater with two straight needles. Rib stitch to start and maybe k1 row p1 row through out, maybe use two colours. All I can find on the internet is complicated stitch patterns. Appreciate any help. Just dont tell any of my friends I've started knitting might lose my macho image.

There are lots of male knitters here, you'll get no laughs from us!

That's a pretty specific request. After you've gotten your first sweater done you may want to consider designing your own.

Here's a few to check out.

This one is pretty simple and looks nice.

This one requires double pointed needles or a circ for the neck I think, but otherwise it's a two needle sweater.

We've got quite a few male knitters here, they are all very macho so you shouldn't have to worry about that!

That's why I said you'll have to learn to design your own. It's the ONLY way to get exactly what you picture in your head.

I did mine in Fishermans wool.
You can find some FO pictures if you look for my posts.
Welcome and good luck!
