I've been looking on Ravelry and Pinterest and Knitting Central for a girls' sweater pattern with pockets for over a year. Then, one day, this popped up at me: Patches & Pockets from FreeKnitPatterns.com (free registration required.) Ravelry link here.
The Cascade yarn would have cost me between $85-$95 to make this sweater. Caron's Simply Soft cost about $18 plus shipping. That's more my budget, esp.;for a child's sweater that they will out grow very fast.
