The My Favourite Things Knitwear Sweater No. 9 knitting pattern is the perfect knit turtleneck sweater for the fall and winter months. Read more to see more photos and my pattern review.
I have been on quite the sweater knitting kick lately. I’ve knit three sweaters so far this year – the We Are Knitters Silver Monk Sweater, We Are Knitters Mick Cardigan, and Two of Wands Magic Hour Sweater.
I decided to add a fourth sweater to my COVID-19 quarantine knitting collection. I knew that for this project I wanted a super warm sweater going into the fall and winter months. It gets pretty chilly in Spokane, so I started to look for a warm turtleneck sweater pattern.
The My Favourite Things Sweater No. 9
I recently discovered My Favourite Things Knitwear and I absolutely love their patterns. They are very simple but sophisticated. I chose to knit the Sweater No. 9 because of the raglan sleeve, turtleneck, and cropped option.
Pattern First Impressions
When I first looked at the Sweater No. 9 pattern, the instructions looked very easy to follow. It didn’t seem like I would have much difficulty knitting the sweater, so that was a good first impression!
The only thing I felt that I would have a difficult time with was choosing my yarn. The pattern’s recommended yarn is Knitting for Olive, but they were out of stock of the colors I wanted.
Knitting My Favourite Things Knitwear Sweater No. 9
Sizing, Adjustments, and Customization
I knit a size small in the cropped version. I didn’t make any adjustments and the sweater ended up being the perfect length. The sleeves ended up being the perfect length as well, which I was very happy about! Sleeve length adjustments are usually common for me.
I made my sweater using Cloudborn Fibers Highland Worsted in the color Stormy Skies and Lana Grossa Silkhair Super Kid Mohair in Light Blue for added fluffiness. I ended up using approximately 3.5 balls of the Highland Worsted and 3.25 balls of the Silkhair yarns.
The Knitting Process
Knitting this sweater was very simple! I knit the body using circular needles, then knit the sleeves with double pointed needles. I didn’t change the size of needles from what the pattern recommends. To be honest, I didn’t even make a gauge swatch. Since this sweater is a bit looser, I decided to just go for it. It’s a horrible habit of mine, but it worked out well!
Final Results of My Favourite Things Knitwear Sweater No. 9
Overall, I’m super happy with how my Sweater No. 9 turned out! It’s so comfy and warm. Definitely looking forward to wearing it during the snowy season with some boots! I highly recommend this sweater as it’s not complicated to knit and it is written very well.
