Time Needed: 30 minutes
First Form The Neckband
First, outline the curved shape of the neckband. Next, add lines along the neckband to give it detail. Then, outline the back of the neckband by drawing a curved line.
Outline The Body And Hem
Outline the body of the sweater by drawing a rounded rectangular shape. Next, outline the hem attached to the bottom. Then, add the lines along the hem to highlight the stitching.
Draw The Sleeves And Cuffs
Draw the elongated shapes on the sides of the sweater’s body to form the sleeves. Now, outline the cuffs attached to the end of the sleeves. Then, draw lines along the cuffs to add the stitching detail.
Add Pine Trees
Form the shape of pine trees by drawing zigzag shapes on the body and sleeves of the sweater.
Form The Snowflake Pattern
Now, let’s add a snowflake pattern to the sweater! First, draw cross-shaped lines.
Draw Diagonal Branches
Next, draw X-shaped lines to form the diagonal branches of the snowflakes.
Add Dots To The Snowflakes
Add dots at the tip of each branch to complete the snowflake design.
