Cotton Knit

What kind of knit fabric can I sew an easy sweater from?

I want to sew a sweater, something to keep me warm at the office. I don't knit and I don't have a serger, just a simple singer sewing machine. I want something medium- to light-weight, semi-stretchy and a little bit fuzzy. Somewhere between fleece, cotton-knit and flannel. Something that would make a nice, warm, long, button-less cardigan, kinda like a blanket with sleeves. What kind of material am I looking for?

I'd probably point you at a 100 wt Malden Mills microfleece. It's a soft, easy to sew knit, wears like cast iron, and sews very easily. About the same weight as a cashmere sweater. Another possibility, one that looks more flannel-ish or suede-y is Malden's microchamois -- again, easy to sew and nearly indestructible.

Here's a comparison photo set between a Malden microchamois and a heavy cotton flannel:

For scale, the leaves on the microchamois are about 5/8" wide.

Here are some possibilities:

The worst thing about Malden's fleeces, imo, is they don't wear out. I'm still wearing a jacket from the mid 1980s, so choose a classic style!
