I made a sweater, and I'm terrible at knitting! My advice is, start with this one:
because it's so easy. Just knit and purl, some increases and decreases. Make sure to invest in some nice soft yarn, though. I used that super saver red brand or whatever and it's kinda stiff. It fits just fine, the way I finished my sleeves were a little tight (I decided on short sleeves) but other than that it fits good.
