Indie Design GAL: Sweaters Part 1

This is part of my on-going Indie Designer Gift-A-Long 2017 series. Starting November 21st I am highlighting some patterns from my fellow designers also participating in the event! Each post will showcase 5-6 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).


Fireside Pullover by Jane Richmond

From the pattern description
This classic pullover is knit top down, in the round, in quick-to-work bulky yarn. Begin with the shapely shawl collar and then pick up stitches for the yoke; ribbing hugs the upper body for a flattering fit over the shoulders and upper arms.

Available in 11 sizes, and uses approximately 740-1372 yds of bulky weight yarn.
 
 

Swivel Pullover by Kerri Blumer

From the pattern description
Swivel Pullover is a modern take on a classic v-neck, cabled sweater. This fitted raglan pullover is worked seamlessly from the top down in an aran weight yarn that’ll keep you cozy in colder seasons.

Available in 6 sizes, and uses approximately 820-1400 yds of aran weight yarn.
 
 

Isis Tailcoat by Keri-Helene Rane

From the pattern description
This tailcoat will be a statement piece in any wardrobe. Fabulous as outerwear for the autumn or spring, lovely and warm as a cardigan for winter. Techniques used in this pattern includes blackberry stitch, short row shaping and picking up stitches.

Available in 5 sizes, and uses approximately 924-1428 yds of worsted weight yarn.
 
 

Quesnel by Megan Nodecker

From the pattern description
Quesnel (kwen-el) is an oversized open front cardigan knit with lots of positive ease. The shawl collar and rolled cuffs make it a casual and versatile wardrobe staple while the vertical stripes of texture keep it interesting to knit and to wear. Instructions are included for two versions: a coat, which falls just below the hips, and a longer full, which falls above the knee.

Available in 9 sizes, and uses approximately 1082-2729 yds of DK weight yarn.
 
 

Annabel Lee by Kristen Jancuk

From the pattern description
Paying homage to the fashions of Poe’s day, the cabled fronts of this cardigan mimic the ruffles and pleats that adorned the bodices of women’s dresses. The sweater is worked from the bottom up in one piece to the armholes, and then fronts and back are worked separately.

Available in 6 sizes, and uses approximately 800-1600 yds of DK weight yarn.
 
 


A note: I take care to not highlight the same pattern as previous years, so do be sure to check out the GAL 2016 series of posts. Many of those will also be eligible this year for the GAL.

    • Thank you for the lovely pattern! I know somebody who’s spun her own yarn for the pattern and it’s been an inspiration – I hope to do the same :).
