The Design Concept Of The Campfire Sweater: A Chunky Knit Sweater Designed For Beginners
When designing The Campfire Sweater knitting pattern, I wanted to make it super easy for beginner knitters to follow. That means only simple stitches, a drop-shoulder design, and no fuss. And that's exactly what The Campfire Sweater is! It's no surprise -- chunky knits and knitwear are a huge hit and are definitely here to stay -- and The Campfire Sweater is the perfect chunky knit sweater pattern to hop on this trend. Oversize, chunky knit sweaters are one of my favorite pieces to wear in the winter because they are an excellent shield against the brutal Colorado cold and it just feels like you're wrapped up in a big hug! Sometimes, I'll pop The Campfire Sweater on without a winter coat, and it still keeps me toasty and warm.
For The Campfire Sweater knitting pattern, prepared to be engulfed with in the gorgeous, squishy Garter Stitch. Because this sweater knitting pattern in comprised primarily of Garter Stitch, it is a really relaxing, meditative knitting project. And since it's knitted in super bulky-weight (category 6) yarn, it whips up in no time at all.

A Sweater Knitting Pattern Designed For Beginner Sweater Knitters
If you've never knitted a sweater before, The Campfire Sweater is great place to start! This knitting pattern uses only simple stitches and techniques, and since it's knitted using large U.S. Size 13 needles and super bulky-weight yarn, it whips up in no time! This sweater was designed in a drop-shoulder design, meaning it is knit in four separate pieces (i.e., two arms, front + back panels) and then easily sewn together at the end using a tapestry needle or crochet hook if preferred. The pattern contains loads of instructional photos to help guide you step by step in case you get stuck -- but I guarantee you that you'll be surprised by how easy it is!
