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