Here’s your perfect slouchy knits, great in
medium weight chunky knits, fleece and
sweatshirting fabrics, but also fabulous
pieced together from up-cycled sweaters.
Loose-fit, pull-on sweaters have a straight
silhouette, with neckline darts for a great
fit over the bust. Choose a ‘V’ or a jewel
neckline, and make your new sweater in
one fabric for a chic look, or piece your
fabrics for a cool patchwork version.
Long sleeves, hem and neckline are
finished with self fabric or knit rib trim.
Sweaters finish at mid thigh; contrast
hand-top-stitched seams are optional.
These modern wardrobe essentials will
be your cool-weather casual favorite;
they work perfectly worn alone or as
a cozy layer over a slim T, cami or shirt.
Wear your sweaters slouchy and loose
or semi-tucked over your favorite slim
or boyfriend jeans, with slim cut ponte
or (p)leather pants, or try them over a
floaty midi skirt for a luxe hippy look.
All-one-fabric version (either neckline) in sizes S-M-L
will need around 2 yards or 184 cm fabric; sizes XL &
XXL will need 2 ½ yards or 228 cm fabric.
If you need to use a separate rib trim for your neck,
hem and cuffs, all sizes S-M-L-XL-XXL need around
½ yard or 46 cm knit rib.
For the patchwork version, all sizes S-M-L-XL-XXL
will need at least 3 yards or 275 cm of various fabrics;
if you’re up-cycling sweaters we suggest using the
largest ones you can find, or be ready to sew lots of
smaller patches together to make your larger patches!
All fabric allowances are for 60” or 150cm wide fabrics.
It actually took me longer to tape and trace the pattern than to sew. I am looking forward to making a couple more of these super comfy sweatshirts! I've had many compliments on my first one.
I love oversized fit in a sweater. This pattern is flattering due to the darts at the neckline and is the perfect length to wear with leggings or skinny jeans. It went together quickly and is true to size. I did have to lengthen the sleeves and I would suggest anyone making this to measure before cutting on the sleeve length. I have made two of these so far and have fabric for two more a terrific pattern.
