Summer Sweater Knitting Pattern by Gina Michele

Knitting sweaters is usually a complicated and time consuming process. Not this one! This loose fitting sweater consists of a basic Stockinette Stitch. There’s no armhole shaping or adding sleeves. The entire sweater is knit on single point needles, so it’s beginner-friendly.

If you’re looking for the perfect summer yarn, Caron Cakes Cotton is it! It’s soft, knits up fast and it comes in a bunch of pretty, self- striping colorways. This is the second sweater I’ve knitted with it and I love the drape!
