Knitting your first sweater can be a little nerve racking. You’ve mastered scarves and cowls, hats are pretty easy by now, afghans are a cinch (they just take a bit longer), but now you’re ready for your first major project: a sweater. There are so many things to take into consideration: increases, decreases, blocking…not to mention making a test swatch is absolutely necessary!
Don’t let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game, however! Even though it may be a little scary, you won’t be able to stop knitting once you’ve completed your first sweater. Knit sweater patterns and knit cardigan patterns offer a stimulating challenge for your mind, hands, and needles. The great part about sweaters is that there are a few different ways to construct them, so depending on your skill level and what you skills you are comfortable with, chances are there’s a pattern suited to your needs.
