Made from a Cynthia Rowley for Simplicity pattern. This is actually the second time I’ve made this sweatshirt; I altered the pattern by adding rib knit bands to the sleeves and bottom. This knit was kind of difficult to work with, because it’s quite soft and thin, but I fell in love with it and knew I needed it to be a sweatshirt. This project came together really quickly; the most difficult part was matching the stripes on the side seams. It’s super comfortable and lovely for chillier weather.
