The Search Continues

You guys are great. Thanks for the ideas. I'm giving serious consideration to Rogue. Eris is out because for some reason the last couple of sweaters I've done are cardigans and I don't want to make another cardigan right now. If I did, I have the pattern for this which might fit the bill. "Heather", Kay's suggestion might be a possibility but I have no hard evidence that it is knit in the round.

Someone suggested Knitting Pure and Simple patterns, which I love. I have several. They are all simple and top down, but they are all endless amounts of stockinette. The Garter Belt has some great top-down patterns. I have most of Wendy's but again a lot of stockinette.

I feel like I'm ready for a little bit of a challenge. Not something that is going to make me crazy with tons of stitch markers and yarn overs that I forget to do (okay, I'm not looking to do lace). I'm not talking about detailed fair isle or anything but maybe something with some cables or color.

I'm going to continue the search, but I'm starting to think I may have to make something up myself.

I've been doing a similar search. I want to make a cardigan but I can't decide which one. I keep coming back to the cardiganized version of the Rogue.

Oops! I did mean Pure and Simple! Come up to the Yarn Cafe and see if they have anything!

Eris can be pullover or cardigan, if that further confuses the issue! :)

I'm just brain dead on this one! I'm so into the socks right now I can't even think of sweater patterns. Best of luck with the search. Maybe you can modify and existing pattern that you know fits well?

Agreeing with the Sheep - find a pattern close to what you want and twitch it to make it perfect for you.
