Newly Added Knit Patterns
If you're a little nervous about knitting an adult-sized sweater, you can always start by knitting for a baby or child. Little sweaters contain all the same skills as bigger ones, but they'll finish faster, giving you more confidence in a shorter period of time. Eileen Casey's basic baby sweater , for example, is a great first sweater because it's all Garter Stitch and there's hardly any shaping at all.
It'll knit up in no time, and if you don't know a baby, it's a great charity knitting project. Her child's cat sweater is super cute, too, and you don't have to put the cat on the front if you want a plain, straightforward knit to practice on. If you're looking elsewhere for sweater knitting patterns, look for projects in garter stitch , Stockinette, or other easy stitch patterns.
