When's the best time to wear a sweater? All of the time! Now that it's winter, we can get lost in the coziness and warmth of our favorite sweaters. But, remember that come spring and summer there are light-and-airy-sweater options to keep the breeze out and let the sunshine in. From the classic pullover to the trendy duster, we've gathered the best plus-size knit and crochet sweater patterns that will flatter your figure and meet all of your needs.
For a sweater that intrigues the eye, try one that features multiple textures. This hi-low-hem sweater pattern by Jenny Watson
has alternating sections of mesh lace and eyelet patterns. The lacework is especially highlighted by the sweater's variations in color. Pair this pretty pullover with dark jeans and riding boots for an effortless look.
Every woman needs at least one staple cardigan in her wardrobe. Perfect for layering in the winter or as light outerwear in the summer, cardigans can do no wrong. This top-down cardigan pattern by Kathy Cairns Hendershott
makes a lovely cover-up that suits any outfit or weather.
Norah Gaughan designed the Lempster Sweater
with a top-down knitting approach. She styled the top to have sleeve caps without needing to sew them in.
