Around the World Sweater

Mix and match your own unique sweater!


Designer’s notes:

The Around the World sweater is a great first sweater pattern. I do recommend having experience with colourwork knitting. Colourwork tension can be all over the place if you’re just starting out, having some experience will give you more even tension, which will improve the fit of your sweater.

The Around the World sweater is a fun colourwork sweater, mix and match colourwork patterns to make your unique sweater!

Accompanying tutorial videos will be published on my Patreon page starting from the Rosewood tier. Willow and Elder tier patrons will receive the pattern for free.

This sweater is designed with 2-4 inches / 5-10 cm of positive ease (extra room). If you’re in between sizes, I recommend going with the bigger size.

Skill level
You don’t need experience with knitting sweaters, but I do recommend having experience in colourwork knitting. Subscribers to my Patreon page will also gain access to the Colourwork Confidence Masterclass, which is ideal for beginners!
