One trend that seems to keep coming back year after year is the oversized sweater. This year the emerging trend is for HUGE sweaters as seen from Pringle of Scotland, Ryan Roche, Edun, Spencer Vladimir, Sacai, Barbara Bui, Chloe, Victoria Victoria Beckham, M Missoni and more. As these may be a little out of most peoples price range, why not make your own?! After all, you have the skills, now all you need is the right knitting pattern.
Find the perfect oversized sweater knitting pattern and get started, it will see you through Netflix marathons throughout fall and keep you cosy once finished. I have chosen 8 free oversized sweater knitting patterns below, that I hope you will enjoy >>
