7 Must Knit Sweaters for September


What will you be knitting this autumn? With a drop in temperature September is a good time to cast on a sweater, the only trouble is there are so many to chose from! To help I've complied a list of some of my favourite sweater knitting patterns for this autumn.


1. Beaubourg

Beaubourg is an oversized dolman pullover that is knit in reverse stocking stitch with exposed seams and a cowl neck. Julie Hoover's design is available to purchase through Ravelry. She has used Manos Del Uruguay Maxima, a one-ply super soft merino worsted weight. This has to be the perfect sweater for relaxing at the weekend in!


2. Beatrice

Beatrice has been designed by Emma Wright, it's part of a collection of knitting patterns that appear in West Yorkshire Spinners Illustrious Pattern Book. Emma has used one of her favourite stitch patterns hounds-tooth which has been knit in Illustrious DK in Sea Glass and Antique Gold. If you are not a fan of sewing up than this vest is perfect as it it's knit in one piece to the armholes and finished with the ribs and a roll neck.


3. Vellamo

I love the striped chevrons designer Francesca Hughes has used in sweater cropped sweater, Vellamo. She has used Shilasdair Luxury 4ply which gives this wonderful sweater a subtle vintage feel. If you fancy casting on Francesca's design you can find it the autumn issue of Pom Pom Quarterly.


4. Carnelian

Texture stitches and warm worsted wool go hand in hand in Mary Anne Benedetto's sweater pattern. A traditional pullover with a modern twist, Carnelian is knit as individual pieces and then the sleeves stitches are picked up from the armhole opening and worked back and forth, incorporating a thumb slit. Knit in Cumbria Worsted which is a wonderful blend of brown masham wool, merino and mohair from The Fibre Company. 


5. Crofthoose Yoke

Crofthoose Yoke Jumper has been designed by Ella Gordon. Cute rows of Shetland croft houses make this traditional yoke jumper bang up to date. Knit using Jamieson & Smith 2ply Jumper Weight for an easy to wear warm sweater. 


6. Lucinda

Lucinda is featured in Anthology 2 / Simple Pleasures which is a collection of knitting patterns by designer Carrie Bostick Hoge. This easy to knit v-neck pullover is knit in the round from the bottom up in reverse stocking stitch in the most beautiful of yarns, Acadia by The Fibre Company.


7. Cromwell Pullover

Currently on my knitting needles is Blue Sky Fibers Cromwell Pullover. With a relaxed fit, Cromwell is a top down seamless knit which is worked in stocking stitch, the neck is later picked up and knit in 3 x 1 ribbing. This is suitable for an advanced beginner or if you're looking for an easy knit to do whilst watching TV! Chose from one of 21 colours of Blue Sky Fibers's new worsted weight yarn, Woolstok which is spun from 100% fine highland wool. I can see I may have to knit this in several colours!
