The recent dip in temperature has us celebrating Sweater Weather in both wardrobe choices and project picks. Which means, yes, we’re looking to cast on another sweater. As we browsed the newly released pattern we were excited to see a slight departure from sweaters with traditional yoke details. Instead of the hero lace or colorwork being placed around the yoke of the sweater (you know, at the top of the sweater around the collar), several new designs have it repositioned along the hemline. A smart move if you like layering scarves and cowls over your sweater – this way you won’t be covering up the design work. For your weekend knitting consideration, check out these four sweaters that feature design details along the hemline.

“City Limits” by Samantha Guerin

Classic and modern elements intersect in this new design from Samantha Guerin. Worked from the bottom up in DK weight yarn, cables and twisted stitches are used to create a geometric pattern along the hemline of the sweater. It then merges with stockinette stitch that continues until it dead ends at the sweater’s crew neck. Buckle up! This one will be a fun knit!

“Helvellyn (Lady)” by Anna Devout

At first, this sweater might look like any other form fit raglan jumper. But at second glance, delicate colorwork along the hemline and sleeve cuffs offer just the right touch of feminine detailing. Worked with sport weight yarn, choose one of several contrasting color ways to knit the colorwork to make this sweater unique to you.

“Tallman Ave” by Kristen Kapur

Bold, graphic colorwork pops around the waistline of this new sweater from Kristen Kapur. The dropped should sweater is worked from the bottom up with bulky yarn in three, contrasting colorways. Add about 6” of positive ease for a sweater that can be worn out around town or worn in while snuggled on the couch.

“Himiko” by Ririko

This boxy pullover offers drama and texture with a repeatable pattern on the lower half of the garment. Work from the top-down and begin the lacework starting beneath the bust. It falls to the sweaters hemline for a show-stopping knit that you will love wearing.
