bookbind till yer blind!

Okay, I'm going to take that BIG step....

I know a lot of you are going to laugh at this:
I've made countless shawls, socks, scarves, mittens, hats, stuffed animals.... I even have a spinning wheel and spin my own yarn!

But not... A SWEATER.
I'm sweater-a -phobic.
It might be because I'm a plus size and everything that I've seen is form fitting, (no, my boobs look big enough thank you) or has cables (I'm cable a phobic too, one thing at a time here) or adjusted for my size is going to cost 300 dollars in yarn (gah!)

Anyway, I'm ready to take the BIG STEP-- I think.

I want to find a pattern for a raglan sweater (they seem to look good on me) that is fairly easy to knit, comes in a plus size (I'm a women's size 20/22/24 ish, in manufactured clothes, depending..) and hopefully the pattern is free so that I can look at it before I commit to buying the yarn. It can be a mens, and it can be a little frumpy. In fact, a sweater that can be my around the house sweater is good-- nothing too punk or going out on the town.

I am just full of tall orders today!

I decided this year that I would do something I hadn't done every month, and March is going to be sweater month, if I can find a good pattern.

Thanks for any help!
