21 Jumper Knitting Patterns

I always like to treat myself to a new knitted jumper every autumn, and so I’ve scrolled through dozens of patterns to find the jumpers that I think are worth making.

If you, too, are looking to upgrade your current arsenal, I have compiled a list of my favorite jumper knitting patterns (kids and men included!) to make layering up feel a little less like a chore.

Autumn’s finally here! That means layering up in my favorite knitwear when the weather takes a turn. An everyday staple, it doesn’t get more versatile than a classic knitted jumper – I can wear it with jeans and trainers for a more laidback look or a slip skirt and heels for a more polished aesthetic. The possibilities are endless.

With endless options over the internet, you might consider finding the best jumper knitting patterns a challenge–one, if your to-do list is anything like mine, you don’t have time for. Keep scrolling to discover which soft, comfy, and luxurious patterns have impressed me this season.
