12 Sweater Knitting Patterns to Knit Now
Winter seems to finally be upon most of the Northern Hemisphere, so it’s especially fitting that most of the Knitscene Winter 2015 patterns are now available as individual patterns. This issue was all about the winter essentials—those sweaters, cardigans, and accessories that are must-haves for winter wear. Of course that includes sweater knitting patterns, such as the four sweaters from our two featured designers, Sachiko and Kiyomi Burgin.

This issue also had 8 sweater knitting patterns in the main garment section. Two were open-front garments, the Field Notes Cardigan Knitting Pattern by Jenn Emerson, and the Trapunto Vest Knitting Pattern by Katya Frankel.
But mostly it was all sweaters, all the time! The Snowfall Sweater Knitting Pattern by Jesie Ostermiller combined classic colors and simple colorwork; Moon Eldridge’s Kaolin Tunic Knitting Pattern used simple two-color linen stitch to add detail; Bristol Ivy’s Chamei Pullover Knitting Pattern uses a texture stitch to form the front and collar; the Hipsemantic Sweater Knitting Pattern from Julia Farwell-Clay features rows of short ribbing to add a visual element.
The two final sweaters from this issue both have gorgeous texture. Amy Gunderson’s Fire Isle Pullover Knitting Pattern combines a slipped stitch texture with a bit of colorwork knitting for an amazing sweater, and Meghan Babin’s Red Loop Pullover Knitting Pattern has beautiful cable details in a men’s sweater (that I think would look equally great on a woman)!
And of course, if you want many of these patterns, your best deal is to purchase the entire magazine. You can download the digital edition of the magazine and get started knitting any of these great projects right away!
