Colorful Knit Sweaters

What fun is wearing autumn attire if you don't allow your clothes to reflect all of the glorious shades found in nature? Different textures, colorwork, and stitches abound, allowing your knitting and wardrobe to be as varied as possible. You will love how these work up and feel!

Autumn Fields Jacket

While the colors of this jacket scream 'autumn,' it's perfect for spring as well. Transitional weather can sometimes have us second-guessing our outfit, so bringing a layer along is always smart.

Effortless Cashmere Hoody

How vibrant! This hoodie pattern is great for statement-makers, and would look just as excellent in a cheery, sunshine yellow or a deep forest green.

Autumn Rose Cardigan

Cables automatically make any sweater instantly cozier, and the same can be said for this Autumn Rose Cardigan. If the cables aren't enough of an intrigue, the deep, rusty pink color is calling for you.

Crystal Prism Sweater

The Crystal Prism Sweater is almost magical in its aesthetic, boasting all of the colors of precious gemstones, from amethyst purple to azure blue.

Colorful Weekend Coat

If you don't go big, go home. There's no way to bring some color into your life like the Colorful Weekend Coat, which is the perfect way to show off an interesting variegated yarn.

Morning Stroll Knit Sweater

The Morning Stroll Knit Sweater boasts a single, solid color of yarn that should be worn with plain pants for a really striking effect. It would look just as stunning in burgundy or indigo.

Lucky Chevron Sweater

Sometimes colorful accents on clothes make more of a statement than just a fully colorful piece. The Lucky Chevron Sweater achieves this with a single, chunky chevron design of warm and cool tones.

Modern Icelandic Sweater

Fair isle is never going out of fashion, and this Modern Icelandic Sweater proves that. With just a simple band of interesting colorwork along the shoulders, this piece is truly understated.

Extra Cozy Knit Sweaters

For days when you long for comfort, this group of relaxed-fit sweaters is just what you need.  These knit sweater patterns will have you ready for the cold weather in no time. Don't worry about what you will wear the next time the temperature plummets. These sweaters will be comfy and cozy for any autumn day!

Brick Road Seamless Sideways Sweater

This sweater manages to mingle style and comfort in its design, which is no small feat! The brick stitch accents make this sweater look high-fashion, but the fit is just the right balance between "roomy" and "fitted" to keep you cozy.

Mad Men Joanie Sweater

Don't be fooled by the worsted weight of the yarn used in this pattern: the close-knit stitches are warmer than you would believe. We love the little buttons beneath the collar that really help this pattern stand out.

Winter Wonder Cabled Yoke Sweater

Behold: the coziest sweater you'll ever see! The intricate cable design just screams "winter," and the high neck of this sweater leaves nothing exposed to the arctic chill.

Vanilla Cotton Sweater

The men in your life need some warmth, too! If your dude doesn't like any major frills on his sweater, this is the perfect design for him. Since it's mostly stockinette stitch, you can eve whip this up while watching TV.

Oats and Honeycomb Cabled Pullover

The bulky design of this sweater wouldn't make you think it's made of worsted weight yarn! It is, and it's loose enough that you can wear another long-sleeved top underneath and still look stylish while adding some extra warmth.

Solid Staple Sweater

If you're not much of a stand-out-from-the-crowd kind of gal, but still want something fashionable and warm, look no further than the Solid Staple Sweater. Just pick your favorite color and go to town; this sweater is ridiculously mindless.

Lemon Curry Ease Pullover

Positive ease is the key for warm outfits, because they allow for plenty of layering! This Lemon Curry Ease Pullover is meant to be baggy when worn, which will give you an adorable bohemian look while still keeping you toasty.

Misty Morning Knit Sweater Pattern

The cowl neck of this Misty Morning Knit Sweater Pattern allows you to unroll it to warm up your neck, or leave it slouchy to warm up your chest. The cute ribbed design at the top gives this pattern a little extra something.

Chunky Knit Sweaters

Some days, the only cure for getting rid of a chill is to put on a super chunky knit sweater.  Made to move with your body, this selection of sweaters in bulky weight yarn is meant for cozy comfort.  From colorful options like the Berry Crumble Cardigan, to classic sweaters like the Cozy Collared Cardigan, you'll be all set for fall with these fine patterns.

Cozy Weekend Sweater

The bulky yarn in the Cozy Weekend Sweater is enough to keep you warm without having to blast your heat and run up your electricity bill. You won't be bored knitting this one, however, since the stitch pattern is still entertaining to complete.

Cozy Collared Cardigan

If you'd prefer something that you can button over your clothes rather than pull over, this Cozy Collared Cardigan is the sweater to knit. It's a bit longer in the torso to give you a little extra warmth.

Berry Crumble Cardigan

Another option for a button-over cardigan is the Berry Crumble Cardigan. This pattern features a coordinating solid yarn to line the sides of the torso and the back of the neck so it doesn't look too busy.

Bee Lovers Sweater

The Bee Lovers Sweater is made of fine yarn, but ends up chunky because of all of the cable and rib detailing! If you can stop squishing this sweater long enough to put it on, you'll find it's much cozier than you expected weight category 2 yarn could ever be.

Comfy Sweatshirt Sweater

Sometimes, we just want to wear a plain old sweatshirt. Did you know that you can knit your own? This chunky sweatshirt pattern will quickly replace your old hoodie in your short-list of favorites.

Easy Saturday Cardigan

The Easy Saturday Cardigan is so named because it's just so simple to knit up! The loose fit allows for heavy layering, and the subtle tonal quality of the yarn gives it a really sophisticated look.

Cozy Textured Pullover

If you could really use a little extra plushness for your sweater, you're going to want to use super bulky yarn! This Cozy Textured Pullover does just that, and it also features a lovely stitch design.
