Free Short-Sleeved Sweater Knitting Patterns

Short-sleeved sweaters are wonderful choices to wear during spring, summer and early fall. If you pair them with a skirt or dress slacks, they make a wonderful choice to wear to the office. And if you pair them jeans, they're perfect for a more casual setting.

Add a pop of color to your wardrobe with the Free Daisy Pullover Pattern. Its mod-inspired pattern looks beautiful with a range of yarn colors, but if you use jewel tones, you can create a gorgeous top for fall. In addition to using fall colors to celebrate the season, you can knit short-sleeved tops featuring intricate textures. Lace tops mirror the texture of fall leaves while open waffle knits add a cozy look while still keeping you cool through early fall heat waves.
