I finished this floppy sweater last week. The fabric is a super soft and verrrrrry stretchy merino knit that was a gift from my Mum (thanks Mum!). The pattern was from the September Burda magazine.
The extra-long sleeves are gathered up at the ends with a bit of elastic inside the seam allowance. The pattern also called for the same treatment to one side of the sweater, to make an asymmetrical hemline, as in the illustration above. But I wasn’t loving that idea so I just gave it a regular straight hem. All the construction was done with the overlocker, and hems on the sewing machine with a twin needle and the walking foot. It’s so great to have the right tools for the job!
I’m very pleased with it, the only issue is that it doesn’t work with a t-shirt underneath. But generally I wear a merino singlet or camisole under it, and it’s the perfect weight & warmth for around the house.
The pattern is “Side Gather Top 09/2012 #130B”, but I can’t get the project form to accept that for the “Based on” field.
