A review of Men's Finlayson Sweater
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.
