After baby blankets and scarves, making a sweater is something every knitter should do. There is nothing like pulling a warm sweater over your head that you made or one that was given to you by a loved one who made it. The quality can’t be beat, either. Sweaters that are hand-knit last far longer than those from stores. If you are hoping to make a sweater, here are 10 Free Knit Sweater Patterns to get you started for men, women and children.
