I'd love a sweater just like this:



Any idea what patterns would be similar enough? I've searched all over through Google, Ravelry, and Knitty. =/

I mean... Could I just knit a sort of T shape and achieve much the same thing? I'm just not sure how to do that while knitting in the round, is all, and I wouldn't know how many stitches to cast on. *purses lips thoughtfully* Or how much yarn I'd need. Ha! So maybe I should stick to a pattern, after all?

I think this may be a case where you could play with gauge to the extreme - find a "normal" sweater pattern that's somewhat close, then knit gauge swatches until you're blue in the face and have a number that seems like it'll give you the measurements you're looking for. Because really, to me that just looks like someone took a regular sweater and blew it up to huge proportions. Either that or you can use the gauge given and your new gauge to do the math required to up-size an existing pattern. You could probably use the sizes already provided as a guide (i.e. look at how they've modified the pattern going from the smallest size to the largest and carry that math forward.)

I'm not sure if that comment made any sense outside of my head. Early-morning commenting is not my best plan.

I agree, it looks like a simple crew-neck sweater with a set-in sleeve done in large yarn knit very, very wide in the body and sleeves. Can't tell if it's also super-long from this picture.
