Everyone is raving about The Toaster Sweaters, and for good reason! This pattern contains both version 1 and version 2 to keep you warm all winter.
Sweater 1 is a closer fitting, semi-cropped sweatshirt or sweater. It works best when sewn in thick, stiff knits with some body to keep the neck standing upright. It features raglan sleeves, a wide waistband, a loose turtleneck, long cuffs and falls between the high and low hip. It’s great in a standard sweatshirt fleece with stretch however, it’s also extremely handsome in a sweater knit to dress it up a bit.
Sweater 2 is an easy top or sweater that can be dressed up or down. It is somewhat fitted through the shoulders and sleeves and then swings out a bit at the underarms and hem. It features a semi high neck that takes its inspiration from funnel and boat necks. It also has side vents with a hi-low hem. The front hem falls just below the high hip. Sew it in a boiled wool knit, a wool jersey or ponte for a more dressed up look. Sew it in a sweatshirt fleece with stretch or jersey knit for a more casual look.
