Hannah's Hooded Jumper

Added Jun 6, 2009

Newcastle, Austr...






My boyfriend loves jumpers, but at the moment all hooded jumpers come as jackets! (with zips) So for his birthday i made him this, but made it too short! So I got the short one, and he got a longer version.

These have been made for weeks but it’s been hard to pry the jumper off of him so i could wash/de-lint it! (meaning he loves it! Successful present.)

It’s called a “Kwik Serge” project, and I have an old overlocker that doesn’t work very well, but i used the overcast stitch on my sewing machine which was just as efficient!

I put the two pattern variations together, using the ribbing in one, and eliminiating the drawstring at the bottom.

May I also add, that Australian’s call these jumpers as it is a jacket which doesn’t do up, and you pull it on. I find it fascinating that the word jumper is used by other nationalities, but to mean something completely different! I understand these are called sweaters/pullover in other countries, but what is a jumper to you? Explain? :)

Material Notes

Fleece – It is fleecy on the inside and ‘normal’ on the outside.

    These are brilliant! I’ve wanted to find something to make my boyfriend but I wasn’t sure what I could manage. Might have to give this a try.

    This looks so comfortable. I know that my sister loves these kinds of pullovers, so I’ll have to make something like this soon.

    This is great! I have been afraid to do something for my husband, but this is great work and I think my husband would get a lot of use out of something like this. Maybe for Christmas…

    In the US we call what you made a “hooded sweatshirt” and without the hood it would just be a “sweatshirt.” “Jumper” to us is an old-fashioned sounding word that means it is an all in one outfit with legs, like top and bottom connected (like are coming back in style this summer). Babies/toddlers, for instance, wear “jumpers”…. no idea why we do this. The material you used, we just call it “sweatshirt material.” Pants of the same fabric are “sweatpants.” And “sweater” indicates a top that is made of knit fabric, usually for winter, but less casual than sweatshirts, like, you could wear it to work.

    :) But no matter what it is called it looks great!

    Hmm Australia takes on certain english terms, seeing as we came from there, so this is probably one of them! Thanks for the insight lol. I was happy to find this pattern :) even though normal patterns cost alot more than Burda ones!

    i have been looking for a jumper pattern since the start of winter. The Lydia pattern doesn’t cut it. and i feel your pain over the zip-up hoodies, there’s way too many. and then there’s the jumpers that have the branding and pictures all over them… they’re just as bad! thanks again for the pattern

    Cool! These look really professional. I made a shirt for my boyfriend from this pattern, too. He loves it, and I’m going to make a smaller one for myself once I get good sweatshirt fabric again. I can’t remember if I just used my machine or my mom’s serger. Also, a jumper to me is like an overalls short dress or overalls shorts :)

    those look great! I’ll have to check into that pattern.

    A jumper to me is what people have been calling pinafores. I don’t know if that “jumper” is just me, from my Minnesota parents or an Americanism.
