I'm fairly new to knitting, can do straightforward knit and purl and can do socks on DPNS and maic loop method. What I've never tried is a big project such as a jumper and would like to try this. Does anyone have an easy plain pattern with clear instructions that I could try and any hints/pointers to prevent any mishaps!

i am in Scotland, so any translations from american abbreviations to UK would be useful although I'm sure my LYS will cope.

Thanks for any responses

Thanks for the responses, will have a look through these pages and then have a visit to the LYS and see what I fancy

Hey Stuart! Here are 4 pages of men's sweaters/jumpers for you, some with English instructions, most with American.

It's worth a look, and they're all free!

Hi Stuart, there's a wealth of men's patterns here and perhaps you could find one you like and would feel comfortable knitting. As you probably know, what you call a jumper, we in the US call a pullover.

If you do find one and you run into problems or have questions, posting on these forums is a great way to get assistance and advice. So don't feel alone; there are plenty of people here who would be happy to guide you through your first jumper.

I thought US & UK uses the same abbreviation for knitting patterns?
Anyway, I just bought a Sirdar waistcoat pattern and it's simple enough to follow.

Why don't you check with LYS? Sirdar is very well known in UK. Alternatively you can surf to or or
