The Tweed Cardigan by Rebecca L. Daniels

Pattern #1

The Tweed Cardigan by Rebecca L. Daniels

If you love knitting sweaters you’ll want to check out this knit sweater pattern from top designer, Rebecca L. Daniels. One of her most sought after patterns, the Tweed Cardigan, is a favorite for the seasoned knitter as well as those just learning how to knit. It’s also easy to do and offers low-stress knitting thanks to no seams, a bit of waist shaping, and even a unique tailored back detail.

The Vienne Sweater by Kristeen Griffin-Grimes

Pattern #2

The Vienne Sweater by Kristeen Griffin-Grimes

The beautiful city of Vienne, France was established in the eighteenth century and continues to draw tourists to its castles, fine wine, and cheese. French designer, Kristeen Giffin-Grimes created the Vienne Sweater, one of the many knit sweater patterns she is known for. This one is as refined as the ancient city itself. Designed to be knit from the top down, this pattern has set in sleeves worked simultaneously with the upper bodice. Front and back V-neck lace edging is worked in as you go. Très chic!

Hope Top by Kristen Tendyke

Pattern #3

Hope Top by Kristen Tendyke

Designed for seed-stitch lovers, this sweater can be worn alone or over a fitted blouse, with a skirt or jeans. It is worked from the top down with beautiful details along the way, including a dainty button closure at the back neck, prominent slipped stitches along the yoke, and a drawstring waist. Knitted in a blend of linen and merino at a fine gauge, this sweater is a joy both to knit and wear.

Tomato by Wendy Bernard

Pattern #4

Tomato by Wendy Bernard

Think a steaming bowl of tomato soup on a cold afternoon and you’ll easily understand what designer Wendy Bernard had in mind for this sweater. Knitted in Blue Sky Organic Cotton, which is soft, soft, soft, but worked at a tighter gauge than the ball band will improve the drape and wearability. This sweater is designed to be close fitting, with waist shaping and a seriously flattering scoop neck. And, for a little spice, designer Wendy Bernard has knitted in a simplified herringbone pattern. Tomato will become an old, comfortable friend for many years to come.

Farrington Sweater by Lisa Shroyer

Pattern #5

Farrington Sweater by Lisa Shroyer

If you love knitting a sweater, designer Lisa Shroyer’s sweater is the perfect choice with a flattering slouch collar that forms the focal point, it truly is theatrical! Knitting this sweater requires the pieces are worked flat and then seamed. The seeded rib edging makes a great non-curling edge that doesn’t contract like traditional ribbing. In a chunky yarn and relaxed silhouette, this design is meant to be worn with positive ease for a comfortable outer layer. The Farrington Sweater is one of those rare garments that works at home or out on the town.

Freyja Pullover by Courtney Kelley

Pattern #6

Freyja Pullover by Courtney Kelley

Get ready to be noticed in this beautiful sweater. The painterly knit-and-purl colorwork of the Bohus Stickning Cooperative inspired designer Courtney Kelley’s pullover. Five colors shift and blend from stitch to stitch in a soft, haloed yarn blended from camel, alpaca, silk, and cashmere. Zigzag designs are built into the circular yoke of this sweater knitting pattern, making it that much more interesting.

Twisted V Pullover by Alice Halbeisen

Pattern #7

Twisted V Pullover by Alice Halbeisen

Designing knit sweater patterns is an obsession for Alice Halbeisen, who integrated a twist on the classic V-neck pullover style with this distinctive design. She began with a wide band of twisted ribbing (the knit stitches are worked through the back loops) at the hem to draw in the pullover at the waist. Extending the ribs in a triangular pattern down to the base of the neckline enhances the slimming look. A similar triangular pattern is worked at each sleeve cuff. This sweater knitting pattern can be dressed up or down!
