Time to Make a Fall Sweater

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!

It's time to start making your fall sweaters! Get a jump on the cool season ahead by grabbing one of these great knit or crochet sweater patterns and get making today! #KnittingPattern #CrochetPattern #KnitSweater #CrochetSweater #Yarn #Crafts #PatternRoundUp #CraftEvangelist

Unwinding with Cable Knit & Crochet Patterns

There’s just something so special about cables in knitting and crochet: the twists and texture of braids and intricate designs. Cables can appear intimidating to the new crafter, but they’re really pretty simple. They require some careful attention, but they’re nothing mystical: they’re formed exactly how you might imagine, by twisting the work as you go. Whether you’re new to cable knitting or cable crochet (yes, you read that right–you can cable in crochet, too!), I’ve got a lovely selection of cable-knit and cable-crochet patterns for you to try out today.

The winter hat is my go-to project for new ideas and stitches. It’s a great way to learn a new stitch because beanies are small projects that work up quickly, so the reward of accomplishment is more immediate than when working on a larger project. The Dunes Beanie Knitting Pattern from Stitch Hiker Designs is an easy cable knit beanie pattern that calls for super bulky (size 6) yarn, so it works up extra fast! And big yarn is so trendy these days. Top it with a large faux fur pompom (I love the selection from Gingersnap Handmade!)

Once you’ve got the hang of cable knitting, the Blacksod Hat Knitting Pattern from While They Dream is a great next project. With smaller yarn and a little more intricate pattern, you’ll find yourself immersed in a relaxing cable stitch pattern that is unisex. This intermediate knit beanie pattern is a great way to improve your knitting skills!

If you didn’t know before, you can get a cable look with crochet! It’s true! The Camdyn Cable Crochet Hat Pattern from Lakeside Loops is a great first cable crochet project to try out this new technique! This hat comes in 6 sizes: Newborn to Adult Men’s hat. This pattern includes detailed photos and a helpful video along with a graph/chart, which accompany the easy to follow written instructions. You’re sure to have a ball of medium weight (size 4, worsted) yarn on hand to have everything you need to make this lovely crocheted winter hat today!

When you’re feeling more adventurous, you might like to explore a cable knit garment. Start with this Easy Cable Knit Sweater Knitting Pattern from Northern Loop Knitwear. It has a gorgeous cabled sleeve and is made with a large, chunky yarn, which means it will work up quickly with fewer stitches and have a casual cozy vibe!

And you can even crochet a cabled sweater! The V-Neck Cable Sweater Crochet Pattern from Beauty Crochet Pattern also has a lovely cable textured sleeve on this classic pullover sweater pattern! This pattern includes many pictures and a step by step photo tutorial with measurements, stitch counts and extra notes to guide you along your way to making this lovely sweater.

The River Braid Sweater Knitting Pattern from Katrines Designs is knit in one piece–sideways!–in soft merino wool to make up this relaxed, but elegant modern sweater with a loose fit. I just love this style and the lovely gorgeous cabled sleeves!

Moving the cables to the front of the sweater, this Irish Cable Sweater Knitting Pattern from Carraig Designs Crafts is such a lovely modern cable knit top pattern, as well. With a breezy open look and loose relaxed cables, this short sleeved sweater is the perfect layering piece for the office with a classic style.

For some crocheted cables down the front, check out the Crochet Cable Stitch V Neck Sweater from TCDDIY. The textures on this sweater are so lovely and intricate, definitely a project that won’t have you bored with plenty of textures and stitches to enjoy! There are a number of other lovely cable-crocheted patterns in the TCDDIY shop, as well. Definitely worth checking out!

Can you believe that this lovely sweater is crocheted???! The Valencia Infinity Cable Crochet Sweater Pattern from Briana K Designs has a chunky, horizontal twist cable that uses an innovative technique for cables that do not have gaps or holes behind them. These cables pop and have a beautiful start and finish. I think I’m going to get this pattern just to learn this beautiful crochet cable technique! Learning new techniques to level-up my making is one of my favourite things!

I just love this Cozy Celtic Raglan Cable Knit Sweater from Knitatude with its cozy jumbo cowl and lovely celtic cable pattern in the front. Knit with size 6 super bulky yarn, this oversized cropped sweater works up quickly and is so warm for fall and winter!

Similar to the sweater, Knitatude has designed this Cozy Celtic Kerchief Knitting Pattern, which is perfect for layering under a denim jacket (as pictured) without the hassle of trying to fit the bulk of the sleeves in a tighter fitting garment! The look of a chunky cable-knit sweater without the extra bulk! Brilliant! I had to share this because it’s such a unique item that most people wouldn’t even think to search for such a thing!

If garments are not your jam, or you just want to bring that cable texture home, check out this Chunky Oversized Cable Knit Blanket Pattern from Knit Purl Curl. Knit with 2 strands of super bulky yarn held together, this 48″ x 80″ blanket knits up quickly and will add a touch of cozyness to any room! This is the perfect winter throw blanket!

For a more intricate cable knit pattern, try your more experience and patient knitting hands at this November Aran Afghan Knitting Pattern from Tiger Needles. With several beautiful and unique cabled knitting motifs and textures, this pattern is sure to keep you interested and creates a stunning piece. The project is worked in 5 pieces and seamed together for a beautiful bedspread or large throw blanket.

We mustn’t leave the crocheters out of the afghan game: the Calming Cables Crochet Blanket Pattern from Crochet Patterns N More is a lovely crocheted throw pattern that is full of amazing texture and makes a solid yarn look glorious!

A Bakers Dozen Of Fall Sweater Patterns

As you welcome fall this year, it’s a great time to embrace sweater weather! Fall in Edmonton (where I live) is usually a pretty short season. Winter likes to extend its reach well into the fall months, so it’s not uncommon for us to have snow by Thanksgiving or Halloween. But this year, the weather has been holding so far and the forecast is looking good for the next couple of weeks. I have been taking advantage of the lovely temperatures to enjoy walks in our beautiful river valley. Wearing sweaters is a great way to enjoy the outdoor weather longer. And a great way to keep your hands busy as you cuddle up in front of the fire or the TV. Check out some of these great knit and crochet sweater patterns, perfect to make for fall!

Sweaters and other garments benefit from wet blocking, which is a process of washing or steaming the garment (or garment pieces before assembly) and gently stretching or positioning it to the proper measurements, pinning it to a blocking mat and allowing it to dry. This shapes the garment and helps to even out the stitches to make for a more professional-looking handmade item.
