Patterned sweaters and knits are an easy way to add a bit of eye-catching originality to an outfit. Patterned sweaters look great in cooler weather, especially paired with a slim-fitting pair of jeans. Choose simple two-tone patterns for something simple, or branch out with a dose of multicoloured mayhem. Below are a few patterned sweaters for you to browse.
1. Rag & Bone Rowan Sweater

The zigzag print on this sweater is what initially caught my eye. It features a crew neck, ribbed trims, and slightly rolled cuffs and hem. The zigzag pattern is done in varying yarns, and the sweater is made from a loose knit cotton blend. This sweater would look fantastic paired with light grey jeans and combat boots.
