It's time for my knitting group's annual ornament exchange, and since I'm not getting anywhere with my current knitting project, I've become intrigued by little knitted sweater patterns.
This time of the year, lots of yarn companies release FREE patterns for little sweater ornaments. I've already have plans for my submission for this year's ornament exchange (more later), but I wanted to share some of these little patterns for little sweaters:
First up, these little cuties from Berroco, available for download here. I love the little fair isle sweater and hat. These would be great for dressing up stocking stuffers like little toys or candy canes.
Vogue Knitting also has a free pattern for this sweater garland (available here). This would be a fun way to use up some scrap yarn while making a colorful garland for your tree or mantle. These sweaters could also be knit as separate items to use as ornaments.
Red Heart has this charming cardigan pattern, which would also be great for doll attire. You can find it on their website.
And a lot of sweet knitters have shared their patterns for little sweaters for free on Ravelry or on their blogs. Ravelry has a lot of patterns to choose from. Here are just a few:
Emily of Greens and Jeans has a tiny raglan design that can be modified in a number of ways.
Lori of Bird's Eye View also has a sweet little pattern that would look great in variegated yarn or using an array of scraps.
And Linda at Natural Suburbia has this adorable Christmas Tree Sweater. Such a great idea!
Hope you find something here to use to decorate your own holidays with!
