Style Sunday: Seven Simple Sweaters
With folks talking more and more about the Big Freeze that is on it’s way I can’t stop thinking in knitwear.
Sweaters are a wintertime essential, and while I love the striking patterned and Fair Isle designs on the high street, sometimes you just want something simple. Am I right?
I decided to embark on the quest to find the perfect Simple Sweater. It wasn’t long before I stumbled across this beauty from ASOS – I mean, its not too chunky, not to lightweight, not too fussy. This is going to look great with jeans or even slipped on over a pretty dress (because the phrase Winter Wardrobe to me frequently means wearing a fave sundress with woollen tights, boots and a kick-ass sweater.) As much as I love this sweater, with a whopping £129.50 price tag, you know what…I’ll look into making my own.
Turns out there are heaps of stylish sweater patterns out there just calling out to be knitted up. Here are some of my favourite designs for simple sweaters…
1 Lightweight Pullover by Hannah Fettig £3.71
2 Margot by Linden Down– this pattern is available for free!
3 My Favorite Sweater by Fancy Tiger Crafts £3.74
4 Garance by Julie Hoover £4.67
5 Oatmeal Pullover by Jane Richmond £3.98
6 Ladies Classic Raglan Pullover by Jane Richmond £3.98
7 Blank Canvas by Ysolda Teague £5
I had initially set out on the quest to find the perfect simple sweater, yet somehow, I couldn’t stop at just one. Whoever said simple has to be boring? Not me, that’s for sure. I might not know which of these sweaters I should knit for myself and name it The One, but I am certain that there is something for everyone – so, which of these cool classics is your favourite?
