The first part of the week has been rainy and chilly here in Dallas. It’s the type of weather that requires warm socks, cozy knits and a hot cup of hot chocolate. Lately I’ve discovered some serious sweater crushes and I thought I’d round up my favorites to share with you. I’m loving oversized shapes, detailed embellishments (like zippers and rhinestones) and statement prints. My favorite knitwear trend for 2013 has to be intarsia – a method of knitting using separate balls of yarn for each color area. I love this fresh take on color-blocking. Here are my top 17 sweaters on the market right now, ranging from $28 to $765. Talk about a high/low!
