It has been quite a hot summer here in Edmonton this year. We only had our first real rainy day last week! We’ve had more 30+ degree (Celcius… 86 F for our American friends) days than any summer on record. I wish I were at a lake or in a pool floating on an inflatable for some of those days instead of renovating my house, but here we are and the only way out is through! Anyway, the slight dip in temperature and a release from one of my favourite pattern designers got me thinking about sweaters, so here’s small collection of stylish patterns to get you started in working on making a sweater in time for the temperatures to turn a little cooler.

The “Super Simple” Sweater Knitting Pattern from ahoneyknits is just what it says: a super simple sweater! Perfect for beginners, the chunky cropped sweater works up quickly and is a great stylish sweater for this fall. Looks so warm and cozy.
The Bubblegum Jumper from Aliza Knits is a fun, textured sweater using super chunky yarn to make a warm and cozy, bobbly, cropped sweater in no time. It has wide balloon sleeves and is size-inclusive with sizeds from XS to 5XL.
The Chainette Turtleneck Crochet Pattern from KnitsNKnotsWpg is a lovely crochet turtleneck with a wide fit in the bust, but with fitted sleeves at the wrist for a flattering fit for all body types. With a really comfortable and roomy fit, this pattern is size inclusive with sizes up to 5X (bust sizes from 28-62″).
The Vivian Sweater Crochet Pattern from The Easy Design is another pullover sweater pattern with a lovely bobbly yoke. The pattern comes in 7 sizes from XS up to 3XL and is a simple crochet pattern, so it’s very beginner friendly. Imagine learning to crochet and then making your very own sweater!
The Cable Crush Hoodie is the new release from Knitatude was the pattern that I just had to snap up and got me inspired to create this pattern round up. This is a cropped, hooded, batwing sweater that ist just so much fun. The hood has a rounded tip, instead of a point and the sleeves taper down to a lovely fit at the wrists. I can’t wait to make this fun sweater!
I’ve been following Sewrella on Instagram and she recently came out with her Folklore collection, inspired by Taylor Swifts Folklore album. One of the options was a kit for the Folklore Cardigan, which LionBrand is also offering as a kit. The pattern itself is free (just scroll down on the kit page and there’s a button to download the pattern), but you can get all the yarn you need in a handy kit from LionBrand, which is always helpful. Watch for a sale and you can always get a good deal on sweater-quantity yarn from LionBrand!
The Dem Bones Sweater Knitting Pattern from Eileen Casey Creations is such a cute and fun knitting pattern, perfect for Halloween. I wish this came in my size; I think it would be so fun. But remembering back to the time when I had fussy toddlers who didn’t want to wear costumes, I think I might have been able to get them into this sweater, which would have been their whole costume. As teenagers now, they would probably even wear it day to day (I really have no idea–I’m often wrong about these things).
Well, that’s all the sweater patterns I have time to wrangle up for you today. I hope you found one that inspires you to get making as the weather turns cool again and we seek to warm up indoors. When I’m happily sitting in my new cozy living room, I’ll be picking up that Cable Crush Hoodie pattern to lounge around in this winter. Grab a pattern today or pin it for later!
