Stitching a sweater is a rite of passage for knitters. It means your skills are advanced enough that you can read and follow a pattern, understand the shaping and sizing involved, and have the stamina to actually finish the project. But finding sweater patterns that aren't boxy, ugly, or outdated can be a challenge, and even then, the directions are often so complicated and confusing knitters don't even want to cast on.
