Our favorite kind of sweater is the kind you never want to take off. That's why the Tealeaf is a must make — the shape is easy to wear, but the details make it special. Think lace, pockets, shoulder saddles, and more.

So many sweaters, so little time! Whether you're into knitting sweaters that let you kick back and crank out allll the stockinette, or are looking for something that requires a little more concentration, we've got 10 gorgeous patterns to keep your needles busy.
  • Worked seamlessly from the top down, this cabled cardigan is the definition of classic. Modern lines add a contemporary element, while minimal finishing lets your cablework stand out. This piece is a must-have for every woman’s closet—and every knitter’s portfolio.
  • This classic cotton sweater has a relaxed shape and a sweet rolled neckline for added interest. The colorblock at the top gives way to preppy stripes for an easy, effortless look, while the lightweight knit makes it a perfect choice for cool evenings and transitional days.
  • This Celtic-inspired cardigan has magical, natural knits reminiscent of a rune stone. The sweater is created with simple reverse stockinette and embossed cables, and worked up in one piece for minimal finishing. With A-line shaping and a draped neckline, the finished piece can be worn open, belted, or pinned with a brooch.
  • Pack your bags and take to the open road! A great beginner project, this classic cardi will keep you comfy wherever you go. It’s knit in five pieces and sewn together. Pick up the front edging band and work it last.
  • Jamie Lee Curtis may be best-known for being the original Scream Queen, but we prefer to think of her as the first Mock-Neck Monarch. This fitted t-neck tank is inspired by Jamie Lee’s iconic ‘80s style, with lacy ribbing at the hem and neckline, waist shaping, and a shell lace panel traveling up each side. The work is easy, but the result is dynamic—just like Jamie Lee herself.
  • Sweater + poncho = swoncho! Throw on this transitional piece when the weather's too warm for a jacket. Worked from the top down, you can easily adjust the sleeves and cropped length to fit a range of sizes.
  • Practice your cabling with this lightweight open-front cardigan. The customizable pattern makes it easy to create a perfect-fitting top, no matter your size!
  • A simple men’s sweater in light bulky yarn – a faster knit that’s not too warm.
