This hoodie was the last make of a complete set of clothes for my son to take on holiday. I have just bought a Coverstitch machine and I had the chance to use it to good effect.. the hoodie is quite slim fitting so best to work from finished measurements and allow for ease. Love it!
I purchased 3 different patterns from different companies (glad the fabric was only $2), this was the last and by far the best! Made the Large for my husband, 6 ft/155lb. Really nice slim fit, not loose and baggy. Awesome hood, The line drawing doesn’t show it correctly. I just hemmed the sleeves and bottom, I didn’t use ribbing, so made both longer.
My girlfriend made two sweaters for me with this pattern. They fit very nicely and it wasn't t difficult to construct. But beware, the sizing is a bit weird. I'm usually a European size M and I have a slim body, but we had to make it a size 2XL from the pattern for a relaxed, but not too large fit. So larger body types will get a very tight fitting sweater when constructing the largest size on the pattern, 3XL.
I made two of these sweatshirts to give as gifts to my father and brother-in-law for Christmas. The pattern was clear and easy to follow and the finished products turned out really well! I was worried about finishing all my handmade gifts in time, but it took hardly any time at all to put these together. I definitely want to make another for myself.
Easy pattern to make - straight forward and finished article looks good
