22 Super Cozy Knit Sweater Patterns

At 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. When it comes to cotton sweater knitting patterns, the hardest part will be deciding which cozy knit sweater to work up first. With so many beautiful options to choose from, your autumn wardrobe will be the envy of all those around you. Plus, the versatility of sweaters makes them an ideal choice for a variety of situations. You can dress them up or dress them down to create the perfect cozy look.

Regarding the Honey Oats pattern I am making a large size with 154 stitches before starting row 1. When i count the row 1 stitches on paper, it adds up to 156 stitches. on the needle. What is wrong with this pattern? Help me Please.!!!!!!
