Does anyone know of a (preferably free) seamless sweater pattern that's not too difficult. I bought one at Stiches last year but it looks too advanced for me. I prefer a cardigan pattern. Thanks

There is a free one posted on my blog for a top down seamless cardigan and a top down pullover.

No I don't have a picture but it looks like this one. The only difference being this has k2, p2 ribbing and I wrote mine with kk1, p1 ribbing. Of course, you can use any ribbing your wish.

My pattern does not include directions for buttonholes because it was written for someone who did not want them. However, if you want the directions for buttonholes, I will be happy to provide them.

How do you calculate how much yarn you need for this sweater. I'd like to give it a try.

I use this chart for estimating yardage.

fmarrs,
I understand you pattern and would like to make a sweater using this method. I do have one question - I don't understand the stitches you cast on under the arms. Is there a place a could see a visual example of casting on. I have never casted on other than the casting on you do to start a project. I only know one method of casting on my mom calls it the German method but I have read knitting books where it is called the sling shot method or the tail method. Any help or clearification you could give me would be appreciated. Your pattern is very understandable I just have no experience with the casting on of additional stitches. Thank you Tracie
