The Super Easy 3-Square Knit Sweater is a great knitting pattern for beginners. The yarn used in this pattern has a good weight and hangs nicely. Plus, the cotton/nylon blend is perfect for transitional weather. The hem of this knit sweater is quite interesting, because it's longer in the back and creates some asymmetry. You really can't go wrong with the beautiful neutral color. It will work with every piece in your wardrobe and put a smile on your face every time you style it a new way. Since the piece is primarily worked in garter stitch, it will lay flat and you don't need to worry about dealing with any complicated or confusing stitches.

This would be an easy sweater to make and it is good for beginners. I don't like the back longer than the front so I would make them even. Not crazy about the armholes but I am sure you can even out the sides. I have never used the yarn suggested for anything but "home dec" as the name states but it worth a try. Good to layer over something, especially with the cold weather here. It will knit up quickly. You can't pass up a free pattern.

I really like the rough and ready look this knitted sweater has to it! I also like the fact that it is labeled as beginner because there are not many garment patterns that are that easy to make! The neutral colors chosen will work with so many different colors and the versatility of wearing it with a sleeveless, short sleeve or long sleeve shirt underneath really does lend itself to becoming a staple in my wardrobe. I think I'll play it by ear as to whether or not to leave the back longer than the front.

I looked at the pattern and it looks very easy. I started knitting so I could make my own sweaters with the color, texture, and size I needed. I have to admit it intimidates me at times. This pattern will be a great one to practice my stitches. I will be starting this today! Thank you for the free pattern.

Cute pattern and easy too! It is a nice piece for layering over a tank top. I'm tempted to make the front as long as the back because I think that would fit my style better than the asymmetrical look. It would be easy to do too because the front is just as rectangle that can be made the same length as the back.

This sounds and looks as if it would be quick and easy -- and would be ideal under a jacket -- sometimes the double sleeve can be awkward

I'm usually not a fan of knit vests like this or sleeveless knits, but this is really cute. I like the color choice and the design that worked up.
