Tweed Knitting Patterns

Knit up a classic sweater or put a modern twist on a tried-and-true design with these tweed knitting patterns.

Few things make me feel as cozy as knitting with tweed. There’s something about the little flecks of color blended into a warm wool that makes me want to curl up with a cup of tea while I knit.

Tweed knitting is versatile, too. You’ve likely seen classic knit tweed sweaters, but our Bluprint designers are knitting tweed in all kinds of ways. From short row cowls to lace shawls, there are plenty of ways to put a modern spin on classic knit tweed.

Grab a cup of tea and curl up on the couch with your needles and one of these beautiful tweed knitting patterns. Not sure what type of yarn to use? We’ve got you covered there, too — keep reading!

If you’re new to colorwork, this is a great first project to dip your toes into. This uses Rowan Felted Tweed DK, a yarn that has several beautiful colors to choose from. If you don’t want to buy an entire skein of yarn just for the zigzags, you can substitute with a DK-weight that you already have in your stash.

Don’t leave little ones out of the cozy tweed fiber craze. I love tweed paired with wooden buttons, like the ones on the shoulder of this sweater. The yarn featured here is a blend of wool, alpaca, acrylic and viscose, making it just as soft as it is warm.

This shawl is a great intro to lace knitting. Ease your way through the stockinette stitch at the top, then add the pretty lace border that’s a little more challenging. Designer Monique Gascon says you can also style this shawl like a scarf. Check out the pattern’s other photos to see more styling options.

6. Turbulence Cowl

Many knitters prefer to stick with one color per project when knitting tweed, but I love how this cowl looks when two different colors of tweed are combined. You’ll use the wrap and turn technique to create the short rows in the wave. If you’ve never used that technique, Crafty’s FREE mini class Short Rows with Carol Feller will give you a great overview.

Colorwork and tweed make a lovely combo. The contrasting pink color is knit with a mohair yarn, giving the tweed a fuzzy, lofty edge. This design goes for that trendy neon-and-neutral trend, but I’m anxious to try it with a few other color combinations, too!
