Sweater Season

As the leaves start to change and the temperature starts to require a change in wardrobe, we knitters start to gear up for the knitting season ahead. Some of us are hardcore, year-round knitters, but still, this change in weather definitely fuels the desire to cast-on new projects. And for a lot of us, that means sweaters.

Sweaters take some planning and thought, but the end result is usually worth the effort. Here are a few of our favorite sweaters:

Riddari Sweater riddari

Riddari is a colorwork yoked sweater. Suggested yarns: Quince & Co. Owl, Berroco Ultra Alpaca , and Fancy Tiger Heirloom Romney . Pattern available as a Ravelry electronic option, available for purchase in-store.

playful-stripes

Playful Stripes is available as both an adult and child-size. Shown here in Quince & Co. Owl, Berroco Ultra Alpaca would also make a great choice.

Grey Havens is another sweater we love. It has such great texture with its interlocking cables. Grey Havens is written for a sport weight yarn. Both Blue Moon Fiber Arts BFL Sport and Blue Moon Fiber Arts Silky Victoria are wonderful options for this sweater.

Maude

Everybody loves Maude. A number of us have knit it. It is a great, oversized cardigan that you can wear everyday. Again, it is written for Quince & Co. Owl, but we are also really loving the Fancy Tiger Heirloom Romney as a sweater yarn this fall. Berroco Ultra Alpaca is another great choice.

It’s time to cozy up with some tea and cast-on a sweater! Because, baby, it’s getting cold outside.

(Disclaimer: Owl is a wonderful sweater yarn, but is only produced once a year by Quince & Co. Because of that, quantities might be limited for some colors, and unavailable until the next batch is produced this winter.)
