Inspiration here - will be 8ply or 10ply and I have pinned a pattern from Rav beside it which is a free pattern in 8ply ~ I like the colours and stripe balance of this sweater plus you will need to be able to work out the opening too.
This FREE pattern is great for a beginner who wants to explore cables and switching yarn colors. It's a baby blanket, but easily convertable to a larger size. How to Knit a Cabled Blanket—The Idiot’s Quick Guide
This handsome little pattern is called theMaster Charles Hat and is designed by the lovely Kate Oates of Tot Toppers. There is also a sweater pattern available to go with call the Master Charles Sweater.
