Pattern Wishlist: Light Sweaters

Knitting is an exciting adventure in the summer months. I’ve already started some of my winter wardrobe projects this year—the Hugo Sweater and a Find Your Fade Shawl—but I’ve been scrolling through the lovely summer patterns popping up every day on Ravelry as I break between color changes. Here are a few of the summer-weight sweaters that caught my eye.


This is absolutely happening. In fact, I may be swatching for this right this moment in the colors of my house. Maybe even twice in alternate contrasts. I’m practically vibrating at the idea of a House Ravenclaw Walk Along sweater with my little Ravenclaw pin on the collar.

This one looks well beyond my current skill, but a girl can dream. I love the idea of this as a flow-y sweater over a pencil skirt or maybe over a tailored dress? Clearly it works with jeans!

And how obsessed with this speckle version am I? Utterly.

How cute is this ultra simple sweater? I’m thinking a very neutral base with a Harry Potter- or Hudson’s Bay-themed surprise at the nape?

The yoke of this sweater caught my attention immediately. I haven’t really done anything like this before (in my short, short life as a garment knitter . . .) and now I really want to try.

Obviously I need a little more DK weight yarn in my stash. Obviously.
