A weekend work-horse!
A review of Toaster Sweaters
I absolutely love this jumper and have worn it every weekend since I finished it! It’s a really simple sew, so perfect for beginners or those new to working with knit fabrics.
I used some gorgeous quilted sweatshirt fabric from Guthrie Ghani. For some unknown reason I only bought 1m (what was I thinking?!) so I had to do some incredibly careful cutting and make-up the sleeve pieces in two parts, but I managed it!
The instructions were fab and it was great to learn a new skill – how to pivot corners when stitching with a twin needle.
I usually wear a size 8, so I made the XS with no adjustments, which has created a nice fitted sweater. If I wanted a more relaxed fit I would go for the size S next time.
I particularly love the split detail at the hem and the neckline on the Toaster and I will be making more for sure, but next time I will buy 1.5m of fabric!!!
