Free Cardigan Knitting Patterns for Summer

Midnight Rose Short Sleeve CardiThe most important part about knitting for the warmer months is to choose fiber that are light and breathable, such as cotton and linen. These free cardigan patterns feature patterns full of airy lace designs and flowing silhouettes to keep you calm, cool and collected no matter how hot it gets. If they're still too warm for you, we recommend them for the warmer months anyway; there's nothing like that horrifying shock of walking into an overly air-conditioned building after being out in the warm sun and having nothing to cover up with!

Free Cardigan Knitting Patterns for Autumn

Walking Bird CardiganAs the weather starts to turn, it’s fun to start experimenting with heavier fibers and thicker stitch patterns like cables. These cozy cardigan knitting patterns are the perfect layering piece for casual outdoor activities and dressier indoor occasions. The challenge with finding cardigans for autumn is that you have to predict every day whether or not you'll need it, with the weather constantly flip-flopping. These are light enough for the warmer days in autumn, but warm enough to protect your skin from unexpected chills.

 

Free Cardigan Knitting Patterns for Winter

Drape Front Knit Cardigan These warm and cuddle cardigan knitting patterns are sure to stand up to whatever winter throws at you. Thick, chunky cables and cozy fibers are the perfect choice for cold winter nights curled up by the fire. With winter cardigan kntiting patterns, you really want to go all-out; there is no space for lace when it's negative 10 degrees outside. Every layer counts, and a hand-knit, cozy cardigan is one of those layers you'll be thanking yourself for when the snow starts to fall.

 

 

 

Free Cardigan Knitting Patterns for Spring

Angel Lace Cardigan These delicate cardigan knitting patterns feature charming lace stitch work and elegantly draping silhouettes that are perfect for spring.

Much like autumn cardigans, you need to protect yourself against unforeseen chills, but unlike autumn cardigans, you're allowed more frilly, girly, pastel knits! Take advantage of this time as you gear up for summer and make yourself a cardigan knitting pattern perfect for the springtime.
