FINLAYSON SWEATER • Pattern
By THREAD THEORY, Finlayson Sweater is a paper sewing pattern.
Garment Details: This sweater is a grown up version of the classic hoodie. It will be a wardrobe staple due to its cozy boxy shape and hard wearing cuffed hems but there is no worry of looking like a slob while wearing it!
Both versions contain stylish features that elevate it beyond pure utilitarianism: Variation 1 features a unique squared neckline and a stylish shawl collar. It also includes an optional neckline facing that can be used to feature contrast fabrics as a finishing touch to the garment interior. Variation 2 includes a roomy lined hood that crosses over at the front to join to the squared neckline as well as the classic kangaroo pocket to protect hands from the elements.
This pattern, is a hard-wearing design with a classic fit. Create a hand-made wardrobe of these designs so as to always be comfortably and stylishly ready for the next adventure!
Sizing: This is a multi-size pattern, including Canadian sizes XS-XXL. Sizing, finished garment measurements and fabric requirements can be found here.
Fabric Suggestions: Medium-weight knit fabrics, French Terry or Fleeces. A contrast knit or woven fabric can be used for the decorative neck facing as well as for the hood lining. Stable knits or fleeces without much stretch will work for the body of the sweater but it is best to choose knits with some stretch or ribbing for the cuffs and hem band. There is an optional longer cuff pattern piece provided in case you are working with a fabric without very much stretch.
Trims required: Matching thread, optional 1.3cm or wider twill tape to finish the back neckline, stabilize the shoulder seams and finish the kangaroo pocket openings.
Skill Level: Suitable for a beginner skill level.
Seam allowances are included in the pattern.
The paper pattern comes in a sturdy chip-board folder with a string closure for maximum re-usability. The instruction booklet is staple-bound and lays nice and flat while you sew. The tissue pattern is professionally printed on 8# tissue paper. Lastly, a Thread Theory garment tag for the ultimate finished product is included!
