Austin, Texas, U...
I really liked the loose style of this sweater and it was pretty easy to sew. I used a warm and comfy organic cotton jersey and it is perfect for mild Texas winters.
I read that some people who made this pattern thought that the collar piece should be sewn differently (wrong sides facing rather than right sides facing) because the collar can flop back and show the seam. I didn’t have that problem probably because the fabric I used had a decent amount of weight and stiffness to it and 100% cotton isn’t as light and flow-y like a lycra knit would be. So keep in mind what kind of fabric you are using when you sew the collar.
