How to Knit a Sweater: 9 Easy Patterns

Painted Glass SweaterYou've already made a few knit scarf patterns; you've mastered how to knit and purl — what's next?  While I don't get to complete many of them (I tend to start 10 projects at a time and only finish half) I thoroughly enjoyed learning how to knit a sweater.  While sweaters are definitely a time investment, there are fewer things that feel more rewarding than completing an oh-so-cuddly sweater to claim as your very own.  Aside from the obvious warmth they provide, knit sweaters are also a staple in fall and winter wardrobes.  Depending on if you make them long or short sleeved, you can don your favorite cardigan in most climates, whether it's bone-chilling cold or just a little breezy.  

Sweater patterns are also extremely easy to customize — and because of this, they're a great excuse for breaking out that special yarn you've been saving at the back of your stash.  Depending on if you're planning on giving away the sweater as a gift, you can make the design ultra special by adding on a few handmade buttons.  Knitted sweaters also make exceptional presents for both men and women alike, no matter what their age.  So if you're ready to take the next step in your knitting adventure, I know you'll enjoy this collection of cozy patterns.

Easy Out-of-the-Box Tops

Sassy Knit TunicThese out-of-the-box tops aren't necessarily unusual, but they differ in many ways from the traditional pullover. Some of them have unique color combinations, and others just have a different composition from the pullovers you see above. Because of that, these easy patterns are better suited to specific occasions, such as a girl's night out or a Sunday brunch. If you're more of a daring girl, you're going to want to choose between these four easy patterns for the sweater of your dreams.
