sweater jacket free knitting pattern

Oh believe it or not, but Canada, one of the coldest countries on Earth, is going to set us an example this Thursday, February 17: It’s holding a national sweater day. It’s target is that 150,000 (or more) Canadian families turn down the heat on the day by 3°C and putting on a sweater.

What an amazing act to fight against climate change!

Sweater Day is an initiative of the WWF. Their site (www.wwf.ca/events/sweater_day) offers several ways to get involved including

  • Take their National Sweater Day pledge. (for the chance to win a $500 gift certificate to Loblaw or one of two $250 gift certificates to Joe Fresh Style!)
  • Sweater yourself on Facebook with their app. Dress up your profile picture and show your friends that you’re serious about fighting climate change.
  • Bid on a designer sweater, donated by leading Canadian designers. All proceeds go to WWF.

Join us in this stance against climate change.



free knitting pattern sweater jacketNo longer living in that ‘freezing’ country, I’d like to help my fellow-Canadians! I am featuring a free, warm knitting pattern!!! Fashionable too! This knitted cardigan aka jacket is a super-fast knit as it uses the thickest knitting needles I’ve ever used: 10.5, chunky wool and simple knitting techniques. Ideal beginners knitting pattern. You’ll love it.

I love the look of sweater dresses
& the purpose. Where fashion makes sense.
That’s where I’d like to be.

  1. We have been steadily turning our heat down for a couple of years now… Add socks and layers… It’s not so bad! In fact, we all prefer to sleep much cooler now!
    Thanks for linking up to Making It With Allie! I can’t wait to see what you have for next week!

    How do I subscribe to the newsletter to get the free knitting pattern?

  3. Saundra Winn says:

    How can I get a copy of the red knitted cardigan using size 10.5 needles. I cannot find a place to get this pattern and would really love to try it!

  4. Patricia Savior says:

    Why do I have to subscribe to a free newsletter every time I want a free pattern?

  5. If you where from Canada, then you know that it is not freezing all of the time. We are soooo lucky to live in a great country that has 4 seasons. Yes 4 different seasons. Love it.

    On another note. I like this site. Some interesting and informative info.

  6. Fine Craft Guild says:

    Well, Allie, thank you . I am pleased you like this site. I made it for you, my reader.

    And, for the record, as I mention in the article, I AM CANADIAN and I’m proud of it. Yes, it is not always freezing everywhere all the time.. You are right. It always was just much colder in Vancouver than in Rome, Italy, and the little plant that is me, loves the warmer client. So, I’m happier now.. I hope this explains my clowing-around comment re ‘freezing’.

    Actually, this article is HONORING Canada; not meant as putting it down. I wanted to showcase how enlightened us Nordic folks really can be! Role models ! If Canada can take on this “heat-down, sweater-on”- initiative, well, then the rest of the world can too, much more easily. .

    I’m looking forward to come to Canada for a visit in a couple of weeks, to enjoy its second to none art and craft. I’m planning on treating our FineCraftGuild readers with the creative craft scene of Vancouver. And if I’m lucky. I get to meet some nice bloggers too.. Where are you based?

  7. I want this sweater but even though I subscribed I still can’t figure out how to get it.

    NOTE ROSE: subscribed & pattern received

  9. Fine Craft Guild says:

    Hi Jennifer, all you need to do is sign up for our newsletter. Then the pattern will be automatically send to you, that is, after you click the confirmation link in the email you’ll receive.

    I am in Italy also, in Rome to be exact, it can get cold. If you make it in orange/red, aka tangerine tango color, you’ll be all hip for Fall.

    Youa re talking about a pink box at the top of the page where I can sign up for the newsletter. I ca’t find such a box. Please help. I really love the shrug and red jacket patterns, and would really like to receive them.

  11. Oh, geeh, well, the box ‘used to be pink’, but now it’s just an image with text on it. To make matters simple for you, I have started your signup process. But it’s double- opt in (no spam here) to ensure that you’d like to get both the free patterns now and future newsletters. I am presuming that you are interested in knitting patterns…. Look for the confirmation email in your main inbox as well as promotion or other such boxes. Good luck with the pattern and send us some photos of the end result! ~ Rose
