On Trend: 12 Sweaters & Cardigans in Saturated Colors

In my day-to-day work, I get to spend time working with amazing knit- and crochet-wear designers around the country. Often, as we talk, I ask them what trends they’re seeing–and lately, the trend I’ve been hearing about the most in yarn is rich, saturated colors. Jewel tones and rich colors are flattering on many skin-tones; it’s all a matter of finding the ones that work on you.

These shades are great for hats, scarves, cowls, and other accessories that add a dash of color, but saturated colors can also make for great sweaters and cardigans that are perfect for layering. By throwing these brighter colors over a neutral or monotone outfit, you can add a splash of color without a lot of commitment (you can always take your sweater off!).

Check out the options below or pair your favorite saturated color with one of our 600+ jacket and sweater patterns on

  • My favorite colors are the deep purples and rich teals. I recently bought 3 skeins of LB “Amazing” yarn in the violets colorway. It’s so beautiful. I don’t have a project picked out yet, but I imagine it will be a shawl or wrap of some sort that I can wear for several seasons! I’d love to hear suggestions if anyone has used this yarn for something amazing !! 🙂

  • Zontee, this is unrelated, but I was watching your video on the Vanna’s Glamour yarn page and in the back behind the tank top is an adorable blue dress. Where can I find the pattern for that dress?

    • Hi Patty, that’s the Dinner at Eight Top (a great crochet tunic pattern) on

      All the patterns in the yarn videos are available on To find all the patterns for a particular yarn, visit the website, click on “Our Yarns”, click on the yarn, and at the bottom are links to all of the patterns that use it. Hope that helps!
