Autumn Rose CardiganAt the end of a long autumn day, fewer things feel better to me than curling up in a chunky knit sweater and reading one of my favorite books.  Aside from their ability to make me feel my coziest, sweaters are also a staple piece in any wardrobe, especially during the fall and winter.  Whether you keep it simple — wearing only muted shades of black, gray and cream — or if you enjoy making bold statements with vibrant reds, yellows and oranges, sweaters are great for mixing and matching, dressing up and down and for staying warm during the coldest months of the year. 

That's why as a special treat to our readers, we've rounded up some of our favorite, most cozy and fun to make free knitting designs for sweaters that AllFreeKnitting has to offer.  Enjoy this collection of autumn favorites that are perfect for everything from relaxing at home on a lazy Sunday afternoon to apple picking outdoors with family and friends.
