Now it’s time to cross stitch your very own sweaters for Sweater Weather. Shall we get started?!
Let’s get stitching in sweater weather
Wearing a comfy sweater in the fall and winter is like getting a good hug from a loved one. As the chill creeps in, there’s nothing quite like reaching for that beloved knitwear, each thread woven with memories and comfort. I know I’m not the only Sweater Weather lover. So this cross stitch pattern is for all lovers of warm cozy hugs everywhere!
Changing colours in your Sweater Weather cross stitch
Are you up for a challenge? Of course you are! You probably already know that even when you follow a cross stitch pattern, you can change any number of colours to any other colour you desire. Don’t have a certain colour floss at home? No problem! You can easily substitute it for another! My advice? Use the black-and-white instructions and make your own chart with your own colours. This way you can be completely sure that you’ll grab the correct colour each time. Maybe you want to go for a vintage sweater vibe with dark reds, oranges and browns. Or maybe you want to go all out with bright neon colours! Whatever colour floss you use is completely up to you. Oh and if you don’t fancy a challenge at all, then just stick to exactly the floss colours written in the pattern. I absolutely love the colour schemes I’ve used for this design and I’m sure you will too!
