About our sweater patterns

Are you considering designing your first knitted sweater in Dreamknit but would like to know more about our patterns first? Then you've come to the right place! Here, we will take a look on how they are knitted and their difficulty levels.

 

A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF OUR PATTERNS

✨ They are knitted from the top down.

✨ All sweaters are seamless.

✨ We use simple language – no difficult abbreviations.

✨ We provide instructional videos for every step.

✨ You can choose to knit with any yarn you like!

 

SWEATERS WITH SET-IN SLEEVES

You can choose between two different fits when designing your own - "regular" or "oversized." This determines how the sweater fits your body, with the main differences being where the seam between the body and sleeves hits and how large the sweater is compared to your body.

For sweaters with a gauge less than 17 stitches/10 cm, short rows are added at the shoulders for a better fit.

REGULAR FIT

On sweaters with a regular fit, the seam between the sleeves and the body is placed at the edge of the shoulder, and the start of the sleeves is shaped with short rows for a good fit. We love these sweaters for an everyday look!

 

OVERSIZED FIT

Ahh... Oversized. It's no secret that this is a favorite of ours. With oversized sweaters, you get the "drop shoulder" look where the seam is placed further down on the arm. 

Both fits can be combined with all types of sleeves and necklines, and in any yarn!

RAGLAN SWEATERS

These sweaters can also be designed with various types of sleeves, necklines, and regular or oversized fit. They are shaped with raglan increases. The v-neck option is not compatible with raglan sweaters yet.

T-SHIRTS

Another option in the design tool is t-shirts, which is located at the sleeve choices. T-shirts can be combined with the same design attributes as set-in and raglan sweaters.

SLIPOVERS

To make a slipover, you have to choose the set-in option and find slipover among the choices for the sleeves. These can be combined with any neckline and fit.

 

DIFFICULTY LEVELS

All our patterns have thorough explanations in addition to instructional videos. Feedback from our customers says that the patterns are easy to follow and fun to knit.
