Finlayson Sweater Pattern
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 still remains an updated basic.
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.
Suggested Fabrics: Medium-weight knit fabrics or fleeces. A contrast knit or woven fabric can be used for the decorative neck facing, as well as the hood lining.
