t-shirt sweater

Maybe its a little early to be thinking of the knitted t-shirt otherwise known at the t-shirt sweater. But if you are deep in winter, then you might want to start thinking about spring, or if like me you are experiencing a strangely cool summer, then a t-shirt sweater is really a practical solution. So here goes a few of my faves – I am dreaming of which one to make. What do you think?

  1. I quite like Wren by Helen G – more of a recipe than a line by line what to knit [Image pictured no.1].
  2. Emmaline by Jennifer Wood is in the Knitty, Spring+Summer 2010. It has really pretty shape and neckline [Image pictured no2.].
  3. Plain and Simple Pullover by Veera Välimäki is a free Ravelry download. I love the neck on this – and the layering options are enormous. [Image pictured no.3]
  4. Silverlode by Kristen Orme has a lovely long line – $5.50 at ravelry. [Image pictured no.4]
  5. Raindance by Heidi Kirrmaier – love the sleeves on this one – $6 at Ravelry. [Image pictured no.5]
  6. Global Warming by Suvi Simola. So cute – love the front pockets. Ravelry download. [Image pictured no.6]
  7. Buttercup by Heidi Kirrmaier is lovely and drapey – could be an overdress. Ravelry download.
  8. Lazy Weekend Sweater by Nikol Lohr was published on craftzine. It has half length sleeves and a hood. Perfect for that seasonal change. Nikol Lohr’s That Girl! Summer Jacket is also on my list.
  9. This 1930s vintage pattern is called 3-Hour Sweater, There are some great updated pics on ravelry from those that have made this sweater – its totally cute.
  10. Classic Silk Short-Sleeve Top by Cecily Glowik MacDonald is a button up cardi – but what I love about this – apart from the cute shape – is that you can wear it with the buttons down the front or the back. Published in CEY.
  11. Mud Season by Elizabeth F. Smith – is my kind of earthy weekend wardrobe.
