You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below.
In the first step of the tutorial on how to draw a sweater, we will start with the outline of the shirt. For now, we’ll focus on the hemline of the neckline and sweater sleeves. As shown in the reference image, simply use some convex, smooth lines to draw these contours.
Step 2: Draw the chest contour in this step.
We will continue with the outline for your sweater drawing in this step. For this part, we will focus on the chest part of the sweater. Once you’ve added this line and it looks like our example, you’ll have the overall outline of the finished sweater. Now we can start adding some inner details in the next few steps.
Step 3: Start adding some details in this step.
Once the sketch is done, we can start adding some details in this part of the tutorial on drawing a sweater. For this step, we will focus mainly on the neck and the edges of the arms and waist. You can use some curves in the neck hole of the sweater to create a band at the opening there. You can also use some of the same lines to create the end of the arms and then finish by doing the same at the base of the sweater. That’s all for this step, and you’re ready to move on to step 4!
Step 4: Start decorating your sweater drawing.
In this part of your sweater drawing, we’ll start decorating it. We’ll show you one way you can do this, but in the next few steps, you can also design your own if you want! For our design, we will have two stripes along the centre of the sweater. Each bar will be created using two wavy lines. As we mentioned, you can also alter the design and make it completely different by using shapes like squares or circles instead. That’s up to you, and when you’re happy with that, we can move on to some final details in the next section.
Step 5: Now, you can add some final details to your sweater drawing.
In this fifth step of the how-to-draw sweater tutorial, we’ll add some final details to get you ready for the final step. Just add some short lines for the bands at the neck, sleeves, and base of the sweater for these details. That will do it for the final details, but you don’t have to stop there! Before continuing, you can also add some details of your own if you want. We mentioned that you could change the pattern of your sweater, but you can do a lot more. An interesting idea would be to draw a person wearing a sweater. Perhaps you could use a mirror or a photo of yourself to create a self-portrait of yourself in a shirt! Another option to spin this image is to create an excellent background for it. What other background elements or clothing items can you think of to complete this photo?
Step 6: Finish your sweater drawing with some colours.
You have reached the final step of sweater drawing, and this is the part where you can have fun colouring in your awesome picture! Sweaters can be any colour or texture you can imagine to get creative for this step. In our reference image, we used a red and grey colour scheme to fill it in, but this is just one of many options you can use. When it comes to colouring, there’s no wrong way. Once you’ve chosen how you want to colour it, you can then have a little fun choosing what art medium you’ll use to finish it off. Different art media can have other effects, so you have many options for conveying the look you want. If you want bright colours that pop, then you can use something like acrylic paint, crayons, or markers for that look. Also, watercolours or crayons would be extraordinary for a more faded look. These are just a few examples of what you can use, so we can’t wait to see what you choose! A Sweater
