Aplogies if Ive brought up this subject before but I am at my wits end trying to find a pattern for a plain cardigan, either long or short with normal style sleeves and no more than a simple pattern (two rows if poss). I want a double knit pattern.
All I can find nowadays is patterns dedicated to a particular yarn ie; in this weeks 'Peoples Friend' the pattern is for a really simple jacket that even I could manage but it must be in 'King Cole Bamboozle'.
All modern patterns are like this, why cant we have patterns that simply say 'double knit'/3ply/chunky etc. They can be checked for size by making a trial square before starting.
I have lots of odd balls of dk in the house and cant find a pattern to use.
Also, when I was younger all patterns were for dk etc. I have some really old fashioned patterns that I could use but I would like a fairly modern basic pattern as Im not too experienced but love knitting and have loads of spare time at the minute. anyone got any ideas where I can get a basic pattern from or I would happily buy a book .
