Why have I not made this sooner?!
A review of Toaster Sweaters
The devil is in the detail with the Toaster. The pattern instructs you to add topstitching to the seams, which adds a lovely detail and gives the finished garment something special.
I cut a medium out of the packet but shortened the sleeves by 2″ after holding the pattern piece against me. Usually I have to shorten bodices but, as this is intended as a cropped jumper, I didn’t need to do that. I prefer my jumpers un-cropped so it works fine for me. If you’ve got a longer torso, make sure you pay attention to the finished garment measurements.
The fabric is an amazingly spongy cable knit and sooooo warm. I cut the cuffs and hem band perpendicular to the bodice as I didn’t want to worry about stripe matching.
I can’t recommend this pattern enough.
