Toaster Sweater Pattern
The Toaster Sweater consists of two different high neck top designs to keep you toasty warm and stylish in the cooler months. They are both very simple to sew and perfect for sewists of all levels who want to try their hand at sewing knits.
Version #1 is a closer fitting, semi-cropped sweatshirt/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.
Version #2 is an easy top/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 mitered side vents with a hi-low hem that is 1” shorter in the front than the back. The front hem falls just below the high hip.
Suggested Fabrics: Mid- to heavyweight knit fabrics with at least 20% stretch. For Version #1, we recommend sweatshirt fleece, boiled wool, or ponte. For Version #2, wool jersey, thick cotton interlock or jersey knit, stretch woven wool, or ponte are recommended.
