Free Machine Knitting Patterns

"Sweater knitting pattern"

Among these free machine knitting patterns is this wonderful sweater pattern from an older Brother Fashion knitting magazine Vol 1. This is a very basic sleeveless sweater with an easy neckline. But it has a nice Fairisle pattern. Would be a lovely top for summer ware.
