quick sweater help

In my usual way of overcommitting myself I decided to make many of our Christmas gifts this year. Which would be a grand idea if I started thinking about them, say, before thanksgiving. I'm industriously knitting hats and scarfs at a furious pace (you can actually get an amazing amount done while waiting for the OR to get ready...) but now I need to make a sweater for my 4 month old nephew. yikes. I've made a Callum sweater for Declan, but would love something that knits up super fast. Any relatively easy patterns for newbies that knit up super quick?? pics would be lovely, too!!

Small things sweater works up fast! I am working on a Greyson sweater right now and I'm enjoying the pattern.

Re: quick sweater help

I love the Kinsale pattern, too- I've done two and they worked up very fast!

Here is one I knit, to give you an idea:
