5 [Mostly] Garter Stitch Sweaters To Knit

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

People often think of garter stitch as basic, beginner, or maybe even a bit boring. Not so! While garter stitch may very well be the first stitch you learn how to knit that doesn’t make it any less beautiful.

From cardigans to pullovers, these 5 knit sweaters prove that garter stitch isn’t just for beginners!

The links below point to kits available on Kits include a copy of the pattern and yarn to complete the project in your desired size. To find the pattern only please visit the designer’s website. You can find this information by clicking the links to the Lion Brand kit page and scrolling down to the design information area (below the overview section).

Uptown Cardigan

The Uptown Cardigan is the newest garter stitch masterpiece from All About Ami. It has quickly become a customer favorite during the first month it was released! (August 2019) Knit from Coboo yarn, this piece has beautiful drape and shines with sophisticated simplicity.


Sunbleached Sweater

Knitting the softest sweater ever is a breeze with this sunbleached sweater kit! Simple garter stitches and easy 1×1 ribbing are all it takes to whip up this drapey, summery garment in LBC® Cotton Jeans yarn.


Celia Sweater

This sweater is worked in two pieces and joined at the center. Beautifully simple decreases and shaping blended into a garter stitch design make an effortless and relaxed summer sweater. Knit in Coboo yarn.


Spring Breeze Sweater

Keep it light and cool with the Spring Breeze Sweater. Knit loosely with a relaxed fit, this will be your go-to pullover for chilly mornings and evening as we transition into summer. Short rows added to the back make it longer than the front and a squishy garter fabric adds bounce and texture. Worked in Comfy Cotton Blend yarn.


Downtown Cardigan

Before there was an Uptown Cardi there was the Downtown version in Color Made Easy(R) yarn. It seems as though All About Ami may be single handedly proving that garter stitch is beyond just a basic stitch!

  • Would like to be able to buy patterns not kits. Do you offer this? Thanks.

  • I have tried to reset my password. Before I can even get to the link sent to my email it expires. Trying to get free pattern for cocoon shrug. I am SO frustrated!

  • I’m wondering if patterns for these five mostly knit sweaters are available without buying the kit?

    • Only the kit versions are available on, however, you can check the website for each designer. Usually they will have the patterns available alone.

  • I loved the plain kntted cardigans BUT do you have any without the dropped shoulders or with a raglan sleeves, please?
    I look forward to hearing from you.

  • For those looking for the pattern only, you can find most of them on for free.The designers use Lionbrand yarns, but have their patterns on there to share.
