‘Head in the Clouds’ Sweater

Our Head in the Clouds Sweater Knitting Pattern is inspired by hot air balloons because of the incredible balloon-like sleeves!

It is a stunning oversized, slouchy sweater due to it being knit on size 20mm needles. It also has the benefit of knitting up really quickly!

Available in sizes 6-28 and styled in three delicious colours. Using just ‘knit’ stitch, this is a perfect beginner knitting pattern. It does have the option of adding a neckline if you’re an intermediate knitter.

The sweater comes out very oversized as it’s knit on larger needles, so if you’d prefer it a bit smaller, do go down a size. We recommend measuring a favourite jumper so you can decide which size to go for.

The length of the Head in the Clouds sweater is determined by you to suit your style, so go for cropped, waist, hip length or even longer!

Our Head in the Clouds Sweater Knitting Pattern is an instant download so you can start knitting straight away. You’ll need both 10mm and 20mm knitting needles, so if you’d prefer to buy it as a kit you can do so here.


Small (UK 6-12) approx 50cm wide

Medium (UK 14-20) approx 66cm wide

Large (UK 22-28) approx 83cm wide

Length is determined by you.


Size small in Mustard, Natural White & Black
