Autumn - one of my favourite seasons. The vivid tapestry of foliage, with leaves ablaze in vibrant hues, creating a breathtaking backdrop for leisurely strolls. The crisp, refreshing air invigorating the spirit, while the earthy aroma of fallen leaves and the promise of hot apple cider or pumpkin spice evoking a sense of nostalgia and warmth. Autumn is a time of reflection, a chance to embrace change, celebrate the harvest and get your knitwear out. There is nothing like pulling on a cosy knit jumper and heading out for a canal-side walk with crunchy leaves underfoot.

Knitted fabrics are known for their stretch, warmth, and texture, making them popular choices for autumn and winter clothing. Different knitting techniques and patterns create a variety of textures and styles in knitwear, from chunky cable-knit sweaters to fine-gauge, lightweight cardigans. I love knitwear for its comfort, versatility, and the ability to keep me warm in cold weather while allowing for stylish and fashionable designs.

Do you like knitwear? If yes, continue reading and take a look at some of my favourite knitwear styles from Cotton Traders.

Fair Isle Turtleneck Jumper

Fair Isle knitting is a traditional knitting technique that originated in the Fair Isle, a small island in Scotland. It is characterised by the use of multiple colors in small, intricate patterns.

A Fair Isle turtleneck jumper typically has a high, close-fitting collar (the turtleneck) and features a colorful and geometric pattern, often incorporating various shapes, including diamonds, dots, and lines. The design is created by alternating between different colored yarns in a way that forms the intricate patterns, creating a visually appealing and eye-catching garment.

Fair Isle Turtleneck Jumper

The Fair Isle Turtleneck Jumper from Cotton Traders is one of their best-selling supersoft knits and features a Nordic inspired pattern across the chest and shoulders and as well as on the cuffs and hem. There’s rib to the sumptuously comfy neck, hem and cuffs to add an extra bit of cosy warmth to this perennial bestseller. 

The turtleneck jumper is available in 3 festive colours: cream, bright plum and dusky blue. 

Comfortable, easy to wear and great quality makes this one of my top picks from Cotton Traders.

Short Sleeve Cutest Cable Cardigan

One of my favourites in knitwear is a lightweight cardigan. They are versatile and can be worn casually or dressed up for a more polished look. In cardigans, I like the cable cardigan style. A cable cardigan is a type of knitted cardigan that features a distinctive texture created by using cable knitting techniques. Cable knitting involves crossing sections of stitches over one another to create a raised, intertwined pattern that resembles braided or twisted cables. This technique adds both visual interest and warmth to the sweater.

Cotton Traders have this Short Sleeve Cutest Cable Cardigan which I loved a lot. Available in 3 colours (Soft Lemon, China Blue and Cream), the cardigan has an open front, making it easy to put on and take off. The knit is irresistibly soft to the touch, and the cardigan features button-fastening front to the ribbed neck, hem and cuffs for a comfy fit and the classic cosy cable pattern all over.

I love everything about this cardigan - the fit, the length, the colour (the yellow is lovely), the softness and its versatility. Goes well with jeans as well as dresses/skirts.

Essential Cotton Crew Neck Stripe Jumper

A crew neck knit, often referred to as a crew neck jumper, is a popular and versatile style of knitted garment. It's characterised by its round neckline, which is typically a close-fitting, rounded collar that encircles the base of the neck. The term "crew neck" comes from its association with the uniforms worn by rowing crews in the early 20th century.

Crew neck knits can be made from a variety of materials, including wool, cotton, cashmere, and synthetic blends. They are available in different weights and thicknesses, making them suitable for various seasons. Lightweight crew neck jumpers are ideal for layering in autumn, while heavier, chunky knits are excellent for providing warmth in the winter.

I have picked the Essential Cotton Crew Neck Stripe Jumper from Cotton Traders to include in this post.

Simple but stylish, this stripe jumper in soft pure cotton, looks just as lovely with laidback jeans as it does with tailored trousers. The classic styling features long raglan sleeves and shape-saving rib to the neck, cuffs and hem for unlimited wearability. 

Colourful, true to size and comfy to wear, this crew neck jumper will make a great addition to your knitwear collection. 

There are loads of other knitwear styles on Cotton Traders like longline cardigans, cowl neck tunics, hooded knitted zip cardigans and more.
