Delightful. This has just moved to the top of my list. With school starting in three weeks or so, I know a teen-ager who would happily add this to her back to school wardrobe

Is there a way to knit this pattern in the round, without seams? I'm a newbie, and I don't want my first sweater to be boring. This is gorgeous and I want to try it but all the seaming and pieces seems complicated.

I've made 2 of these - love this pattern!

I am a beginner and it seems like the majority of your patterns are for intermediate knitters how am I suppose to learn your patterns? I think that's why most of us crochet.Kelly

Hi there, Kelly! To view our beginner patterns, click "Knitting for Beginners" on the lefthand side of the website above our categories. Alternatively, you can search for specific beginner patterns using our "advanced pattern search" button next to the search bar at the top of the page. Sweaters, as a general rule, are less likely to be beginner patterns as more straightforward designs such as scarves or hats. I hope that helps! Happy knitting!
