Thanks to anyone with ideas on the following. . . I am interested in knitting some "side to side" sweaters and would love to hear from any of you with your favorites. Best, toni

And there's one in the Fall 2004 IK called Sideways Spencer.

The Angel Island Shell is knit in an upside U manner. Here is a picture of mine.
It is easy to knit and fun.

Ample Knitters group, www.ample-knitters.com, did a knitalong of Susan Esser's Cuff To Cuff, and that came in lots of different sizes, great and small. Investigate that, if you're interested.

There's also the Side to Side Ribbon Pullover in the Spring 04 Interweave Knits. This is my current wip - an easy, quick knit.

I'm working on "Tilt" from Knitty.com. But I'm also looking for a side-to-side cardigan that doesn't have an emphasis at the bust...just a straight sideways knit with slim sleeves and long--below the fingertip length cardigan with a v-neck preferably. I've been looking on these sites that were mentioned, and thank you , but haven't found anything yet. Hoping to find a free pattern.

You can certainly adjust the pattern for sleeve width and length of the cardigan. (I assume that's what you mean by fingertip length--the body, not the sleeve.) That's not hard to do if you have done a good swatch. I'm not sure what you mean by "emphasis at the bust" -- all the side-to-side cardigans I've ever seen have no designs at the bust level. And if there were, you could omit those, too. Was there some particular pattern you found like that?

Lemons, this is Tilt: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall03/PATTtilt.html

I see what she means about emphasis at the bust, and due to the construction, I don't think she could eliminate it without making a whole new pattern.

A truly cool sweater, to be sure, I can see. I guess I just never considered it to be a true side-to-side, which is my error.

Did not see any cardigans that are side-to-side at Yarn Barn in VA, only vests and some picked up edge cardigans that hang poorly...no offense. [blush] I'm still looking I guess. Thank you for suggesting ideas.

I have a book, though I'm not sure where I got it, called New Directions in Knitting. It has side to side patterns, diagonal patterns, etc. and it very interesting. I have made a couple of the sweaters and found the patterns to be easy to read, easy to do. Good luck. Regards, Mary
