I have made 2 – Finlayson Sweater

A review of Thread Theory Men's Finlayson Sweater

Reviewed by Sarah on 20th March, 2020

The first time I made this sweater I made a hoodie.  The pattern was easy and the sewing went quickly.  The fit is amazing.  The black fabric has very little stretch; it is a recycled cotton fleece.  No matter, the hoodie is amazing.


I had some left over sweatshirt fleece from another pattern I made, so I decided to make the sweater version of the Finlayson.  I made the same size, but I shortened the sleeves by about and inch.  Again, it’s wonderful.  I feel like I could make one for each day of the week.


The only confusing part of the pattern is the putting on of the hood/collar.  It’s only confusing when the sewist (me) thinks I know better than the pattern.  LOL.  I followed the directions exactly on the second version and didn’t have to take out any seams.


I used my serger for almost the entire project.
