I love ravelry because it is an online community where you can find patterns (for free and for sale) for almost anything you might want to make with yarn. It is a great tool to help you find inspiration and you can save patterns in your "favorites" to look at later. I have actually found several great patterns for free that I have downloaded. It is also a great resource if you want to grow your ability to read patterns.
Here's one that I stumbled upon today. It is a free download on ravelry's site.
I made this cardigan in 2 evenings this past weekend. I whipped it up in an 18-24 month size for Nora. Still really need to take a picture (this picture was taken from ravelry's site). My interpretation of the pattern was a little bit different, but I love the way it turned out. I'll have to upload a picture of the finished product soon.
