11 Easy (and Cozy) Knitting Patterns

From pullovers to cardigans to tops, these easy patterns are the perfect introduction to the world of creating gorgeous and cozy sweaters you’ll want to wear all winter long.

Sweater patterns can be intricate and complex. But they don’t have to be. These beautiful patterns are easy enough for beginners, and stylish enough for experienced knitters to enjoy.

It is officially sweater season, and that means it’s time to try some new patterns! I know sweaters can seem daunting if you’re new to knitting. It’s true that some sweater patterns can get amazingly elaborate and detailed. Those are fun to make, and you can certainly find some of those in our library. But if you’re new to knitting sweaters, you want something easy and fashionable. Something that looks great, and that won’t have you looking at your knitting needles with dismay.

That’s why we put together a curated collection of easy patterns for sweaters, cardigans, and pullovers. The 11 hand-picked patterns in this collection are inspired by the ruby leaves of autumn foliage, the deep blue of the ocean, and the soft purple fields of lavender in the French countryside.

11 Easy Knitting Patterns For Sweaters, Cardigans, and Tops is designed to help you succeed and look great, whether you’re knitting your first sweater or you just want a fun weekend project. These pullovers and cardigans go great with your favorite jeans, but they work just as well for a day at the office. Solids or stripes or subtle patterns – it’s all in this collection.

And that’s just the beginning. There are more than 700 patterns available in our library, so once you’re ready to try something more advanced, or just something completely different, it’s right there at your fingertips.

Leaf Lines Sweater

The Leaf Lines Sweater has it all. It’s close-fitting and elegant. The waist shaping adds a flattering silhouette, and the diamond leaves down each sleeve bring an understated textural interest to the sweater. It’s also 100% wool, which means you’ll be 100% cozy all season long. This could easily become the go-to piece in your fall and winter ensemble.

The Leaf Lines Sweater reminds me so much of fall, thanks to the warm red of the wool and the soft lines that give the sweater an organic flow.

Another top that’s ideal for early fall is the Olive Flare Top. The stockinette stitch and the cool olive green yarn make this a lovely casual top that you can wear for an afternoon stroll. The cotton wool is as soft as can be, and of course, it’s perfectly easy if you’re new to knitting sweaters!

The Lapis Pullover uses an incredibly attractive and comfy blend of Alpaca and Merino wools in a stunning Atlantic Heather blue. What really makes this sweater a standout, though, are the thumbholes and the kangaroo pocket. Talk about cozy! This is bound to be one of your new favorites for those cool fall days.

Nantucket Pullover

 The Nantucket Pullover is truly a classic. The flattering stripe pattern, in Natural, Continental Blue, and Buscando Azul, is reminiscent of the horizon where ocean and sky meet. And the Merino wool yarn is endlessly comfortable. You can’t go wrong with this pattern!

 Poplar Cardi

 If you love wearing sweaters that feel like a giant hug, the Poplar Cardi is for you. With only one seam, this is a breeze to knit, and it’s perfect to throw on when the temperature drops.

And don’t forget, the Poplar Cardi, Nantucket Pullover, Lapis Pullover, Olive Flare Top, and Leaf Lines Sweater all come with everything you need to be successful. In fact, every pattern we publish in I Like Knitting, comes complete with:

  • A full list of all the yarns and tools you’ll need
  • Row by row instructions
  • Special stitch instructions
  • Pattern notes
  • Detailed, full-color photography
