Indie Design GAL 2017: Top 10 garments

One of the key features of the Indie Design GAL* is the knit and crochet along, which is broken up into 8 categories (head, hands, feet, baby, garments, shawls, neck and other).

Over the course of this week, I have been sharing my favourite patterns in each of the categories. So far I've covered hat patterns, knits for hands, socks, knits for babies and shawls. Today, as the sale portion of the GAL is coming to an end, I'm going to have a bumper crop of recommendations: the first is about garments, and the second will be about knits for your neck.

 1. Clarke Pullover by Jane Richmond
Perfectly casual, I think this might just be the perfect jumper.

2. Frosted by Lisa K. Ross
The colourwork on this jumper is absolutely beautiful.

3. Tucker Sweater by Amanda Scheuzger
I can't even begin to work out how these cables are created. An excellent focal point for the jumper.

4. Greystone by Sarah Cooke
I am always on the look out for the perfect cardigan and this ticks a lot of boxes - and it has pockets!

5. Celista by Megan Nodecker
I adore this. Bold and graphic and unusual.

6. Summer Festival by Georgie Nicolson
Another fantastic cardigan, especially in this bright yellow.

7. Soulful Sweater by Anna Johanna
Such beautiful lace detailing on the yoke.

8. Strawberry jam by Victoria Groger
One for the kids (sized 2-12), I think the cables on the front of this jumper would be great fun to knit.

9. Anemone by Svetlana Volkova
The anemone pattern on the front of this sweater is very striking.

10. Snow is Falling by Melissa Kemmerer
Because I am a sucker for a winter-themed pattern, and this one comes in an excellent range of sizes (30-55 in chest).

If you've missed the sale portion, have no fear, the knit and crochet-along portion of the KAL is continuing until the end of the year,* so you have plenty of time to join in (and remember that you can use any paid-for pattern by a participating designer - you could always have a look in your Ravelry library to see if you already own any patterns by a participating designer).

I've put together a bundle of my favourite GAL sale patterns. If you'd like to take a look, you can find it here.
