Indie Design GAL: Sweaters Part 1

This is part of my on-going Indie Designer Gift-A-Long 2016 series, where from November 23rd – December 31st I highlight some patterns from my fellow designers also participating in the event! Each post will highlight at minimum 5 different designers and their patterns.

Don’t forget to join in the fun, we’re all over here chatting up a storm (when our fingers aren’t flying that is).

There are so many awesome sweaters being offered by designers this year I had to extend this post to a two parter!

silversmithSilversmith Hoodie by Meiju K-P

From the pattern description
This cardigan features two different cable textures. It is worked seamlessly from the top down with saddle shoulders and modified contiguous sleeve shaping. The body length can be easily modified, if preferred. The pattern includes video tutorial on how to work minicables without cable needle. You have to be able to read charts for this pattern.

Uses 1350 – 2250 yds of worsted weight yarn

orchardOrchard Pullover by Nicole Montgomery

From the pattern description
Keep cozy as the weather cools off in the Celtic vines of the Orchard Pullover. This short-sleeved sweater is perfect for layering over a long-sleeved t-shirt. The oversized collar can be buttoned up and worn folded-over, or unbuttoned and worn flat. Cabled cuffs finish off the slightly-puffed sleeves and run up the edges of the collar to pull the whole look together.

Uses 810-1325 yds of aran weight yarn

frobisherFrobisher by Jessie McKitrick

From the pattern description
Frobisher, like its namesake Canadian rose and the explorer for whom the rose was named, is hardy enough for cold climates. Even if you’re not seeking the Northwest Passage, it will keep you warm for your own explorations of woodlands and hillsides over crisp, autumn leaves.

Uses 1455 – 2286 yards of aran weight yarn

tuckerTucker Sweater by Amanda Scheuzger

From the pattern description
A distinctive cable travels horizontally around the yoke of the otherwise spare and minimalistic Tucker Sweater. This infinite cable is fun to work and fits neatly into the upper body circumference across sizes.

Uses 1040 – 1456 of bulky yarn.

quibbleQuibble by Amanda Woeger

From the pattern description
Quibble is a comfortable, yet stylish vest that is knit from the crown of the hood to the hem in one piece. The hood is cast on using Judy’s Magic Cast On method and is shaped using increases and short rows. The cable pattern on the side seams give Quibble a subtle feminine flair.

Uses 850 – 1350 yds of DK weight yarn

greystoneGreystone by Sarah Cooke

From the pattern description
This simple open front cardigan is knit in one piece from the top down with raglan shaping for the sleeves. Apart from the pockets it is completely seamless. It features flattering a-line shaping and a twist stitch pattern on the back and pockets.

Uses 1200 – 2000 yds of DK weight yarn
