Men's sweater pattern
Am I making this too hard? (Hint: The answer is probably yes...)

About a week ago, I accidentally tossed my boyfriend's luscious 100% merino wool sweater in the dryer. I feel terrible -- so I want to make him a new sweater or two. Surprisingly, I'm having trouble finding high-end sweater knit wools at a *relatively* reasonable price, but I'm confident I can figure that out.

What I can't find is a decent pattern for man's sweater. I found several Kwik Sews meant for jerseys/fleeces/stretch knits, but I'm looking for something suited to a sweater knit.

My question: Wouldn't any plain ol' t-shirt/loungewear shirt pattern do? Maybe in a slightly larger size than the measurements suggest, so it layers easily?

Could it be that simple? I hope so. (Bracing my self for ridiculous answers ... ask a stupid question, as they say...)

I would think a sweatshirt-type pattern would work fine.

You might check out of print Stretch & Sew patterns. They had several sweater patterns, even for men. You can find them on Etsy and Ebay. Here is an example.mens sweater

My grandmother taught me to sew when I was 10, and I've been sewing ever since.
