What you need to know

If you’re new to knitting, or if you’ve never made a garment before, then this straightforward pattern by Siân Brown is an easy one to try.

Worked flat on two needles with garter stitch borders, a main body in stocking stitch and minimal shaping, this sweater features nothing too scary for a novice knitter. The most challenging part is picking up stitches for the neckband and working this in the round, but you’ll find tips on how to do this in the pattern, along with plenty more helpful hints.
