5 sweater patterns on Ravelry

Sweater season is nearly over! It didn't feel long enough this year. I still have so many winter projects I wanted to knit, but I reckon there's time for one more. So I've rounded up some of my favourite sweater patterns on Ravelry at the moment.

I recently came across Ranti Studio on Instagram and love her designs. She has such a great range of modern knitting patterns on her website and Ravelry, suitable for both beginners and more advanced knitters. The Chalet Jumper uses two strands of aran-weight yarn held together, which creates the two-toned effect. This is a great beginner-friendly method for using multiple colours, and there are endless possibilities. The garter stitch cuffs and rolled rib neckline are my favourite details. The range of techniques in this sweater makes it the perfect project to learn something new. I am excited to get this one on my needles!

The texture on the jumper is beautiful, and the cables running down the sleeve are such a statement design feature. This pattern uses lace and fingering weight yarns held together, one of my favourite techniques when knitting up sweaters, as it leaves you with so many yarn choices and texture options. The seamless construction makes for an easy-going knit on the body and something a little more complicated when working on the sleeves. I love these kinds of projects as I can choose to work on the mindless knitting or the harder parts when I am feeling motivated.

A super versatile pattern pack!! There are instructions to knit this sweater with or without waist shaping, cropped or standard length, folded neckband or turtle neck and an option to add short rows in the chest to make more room if needed. There are multiple choices for pattern design, and the repeats only ever use two colours at a time, so it is perfect for a first colour-work project. There are also tips for experimenting with your own pattern. The pack is a little on the pricier side, but you get all the instructions to make a huge variety of sweaters, and you could even knit it up in a plain colour, too! Lydia also offers more accessible pricing options; there are more details on the Ravelry pattern page.

We have DK-weight yarn available in lots of colours here.

I love the relaxed fit combined with fun details like the split seam and long rib in this sweater. I think it's really flattering and looks like a super fun knit, with lots of different elements and details keeping it interesting. It is worked up with a DK-weight wool run with a lace-weight silk mohair. I would love to try this with a neutral colour base and a bright silk mohair to make a contrasting fuzz effect. There are lots of projects using this pattern on Ravelry if you are looking for some inspo.

The combination of ribs and cables in this sweater is so sophisticated and creates such a nice structured sweater. I am dying to make this in a cobalt blue or lime green. I think the pop of colour would contrast nicely with the refined design features. This project uses three yarns run together, which gives you unlimited fabric choices; swatching for this one would be so fun!

I hope you have enjoyed my sweater roundup. I am struggling to pick a last project for the winter season, but I think it's going to have to be The Chalet Jumper by Ranti Studio; I just need to make a decision on yarn. What is your favourite make of this sweater season? I'd love to hear about it in the comments.

Don't forget to check out the website for yarn and a HUGE selection of knitting needles.

Happy knitting,
