Today the knitting friends live in a true paradise. There are thousands of great patterns you can easily find for free on the web.
Have you never knitted an openwork pattern before? Then it's about time. You don't even have to knit an entire sweater in the lace pattern, it's enough to embellish the neckline with it, for example.
You can easily find a small overview and suggestion of all the great openwork patterns on Pinterest. You can also download the sample instructions there:
Elegant lace pattern jumper with half sleeves
This feminine sweater can be knitted from a wide variety of yarns and is also suitable for evening wear. Then maybe choose black wool or shimmering Lurex yarn. In colorful wool or gradient yarn, it looks elegant in summer and can be worn every day.
Under it you simply wear a contrasting colored top or one in the same color as the sweater. With its distinctive short cut and half-length sleeves, it cuts a great figure. The pattern is extremely filigree and of course difficult to knit.
Half-length tunic with a wide neckline
You show a lot of skin with this: The very perforated pattern has a beautiful structure. A small peplum surprises at the bottom, but you can also omit it, depending on your taste. The cut impresses with its casual length and wide neckline, as well as the ¾ sleeves. The crocheted edges are very pretty and fit perfectly.
Feel free to knit this jumper in eye-catching colors or striking gradient yarns. Summery pants, leggings, but also narrow skirts go well with it.
Summery poncho jumper in an asymmetrical cut
The asymmetrical cut causes a sensation: Despite its extravagant cut, it is super comfortable and easy to wear and can also be combined. The knitting is also not an art in terms of cut: It is basically just two straight sections that are connected to each other. The pattern is more of a challenge, but worth the effort. The pullover is perfect for every summer day, but can also be worn over the bikini on the beach in the evening.
Ajour pattern for sexy insights
Ajour patterns can spice up any simple pullover enormously. The lace pattern can be knitted in at the neckline or only at the back or at the sleeves or, as shown here, lengthways across the upper body at the front and back. This pattern is particularly artistic and filigree.
If you don't want to give too much insight, just wear a shirt underneath. Holey passages on the sleeves also look very pretty. Simply knit a wide passage with an openwork pattern from the shoulders to the edge of the arm.
Conclusion: Once you have started to work with openwork patterns, you can hardly get away from it. Many patterns can also be combined with each other.It looks very nice if you knit the sleeves in one pattern and choose different patterns for the front and back as a contrast. There are basically no limits to your imagination. You can embellish any knitted jumper with passages of openwork stitches. In no time the knitted fabric has a very feminine, delicate touch.
Ajour pattern sweaters also help you out of some embarrassments. They are always a good choice when you don't really know what to wear but still want to attract attention. You can knit them from a wide variety of yarns, and they always look different. Solid, glittering lurex yarns have proven their worth for the evening. During the day and just for summer, pure white is quite pretty, but so are pastel tones. The openwork sweaters with the gradient yarns from Chiemseegarn become really unique and spectacular.
