Right now I’m working on the Harvest Cardigan by TinCanKnits. It’s knit all in one piece from the top down. I think this is the way to go with knitting garments. No seems to worry about and no seaming a bunch of pieces together at the end.
This pattern is great. It is part of The Simple Collection– a collection of 8 free knitting patterns with awesome pictures and tutorials. The collection is meant for beginner knitters wanting to build their skills and confidence or knitters looking for simple modern knits. I can’t say enough about their tutorials and clear concise directions. Check them out!
