Here’s a selection of Indie Design Gift Along 2020 Sweater Favourites I wanted to share with you today.
This pretty yoke sweater is knitted in sport weight yarn and is perfect for using up mini skeins or self striping yarns for the bobbles.
Knitted in DK weight yarn with a beautiful lacy yoke, this sweater would be one of my go-to items to wear every day.
Linnutee (Estonian for Milky Way, however the direct translation would be A Birds Path) is a cute tee specially designed for gradient yarn cakes or mini skein sets. It would also be a great way to use up those self striping yarns you aren’t sure how to use.
It is completely sized to fit each part of your body, from the hips to the shoulders. If you have trouble getting your sweaters to fit, this book is for you!

A cropped layering pullover in worsted/aran weight yarn will be a super fast knit and come in a big range of sizes.
by Emma Sadler
I’ve knitted this myself to test the pattern for Emma, it’s easy, relaxing and a great way to use up scraps of sock or sport weight yarns to knit a very lightweight but super warm sweater for cool days and nights.
I love the collar on this cardigan, but suggest you look at other projects for this garment on Ravelry as the designers photos, whilst beautiful, are really dark and are very hard to see.
The body of the cardigan is worked in a lovely lace-pattern.
The sleeves are worked in stockinette sts, and could be worked to any length. The hems of the body/sleeves are folded back.
The cardigan is supposed to be roomy and comfortable, with it’s rounded neck, and box-shaped body.

Part poncho, part pullover, and all pretty with flattering ombre neckline and an elaborate and large floral motif around the yoke. Knitted in sport weight yarn and perfect for mini skins, gradient sets or self stripers.
by Anna Johanna
Top down and brioche, a fabulous combination and such fun to knit.

Worked top down and in the round with texture patterns on the yoke and body, the sleeves are the start of the show in this peasant style top.
I love the mustard colour at the start of the top down yoke on this one, a beautiful contrast to the crisp cream and navy. Knitted in DK for a relatively quick knit.
Bottom up stripes and mosaic, super easy colourwork for those who don’t know to create a striking yet simple to make sweater.
Aran weight, oversized with a boxy shape, perfect for working at home, a coffee with friends (via Zoom or in person).
by Carol Sunday
The pullover is knitted from side to side in one piece beginning with a provisional cast-on. Pockets are cleverly knit in. Cowl and ribbing at hem are picked up and knitted. Sleeves are knitted from the top in the round, and sleeve caps are shaped with short rows.
A chic and stylish top down sweater knitted up to plus sizes
Once Again is a top-down, pullover sweater; knit in-the-round with a stranded yoke that is coupled with simple cable stitches. Short rows are used to shape the neckline after the yoke pattern is completed.
Brise-soleil is a double-breasted, asymmetrical cardigan with textured elements.
Utmost Happiness sweater is worked seamlessly top-down. After a ribbing for neckband and set of short rows to raise the back of the sweater, a round yoke is decorated with an elaborate cable pattern achieved with mosaic knitting.
A bohemian open cardigan with drop sleeves, long brioche cuffs, a cozy brioche collar, and a large brioche hem as the focal point.
“Potala” is a seamless open-front cardigan, especially warm thanks to the yak-merino-silk blend and a ribbed back.
A simple shawl-type construction applied to an oversized sweater. An easy introductory garment and a fun knit.
Knitted in Aran yarn, worked top down and a great cardigan for work or play.
