Jasper Sweater

Paprika Patterns

Designed with the cold seasons in mind, the Jasper is the perfect garment for snuggling up on the couch with a hot cup of something. Going out of the house won’t mean changing though, the Jasper is comfortable and edgy. There are multiple ways to personalise your Jasper: make it in one colour, contrasting hem, cuffs and welt strip or even contrasting side panels.

View A features a big and asymmetrical hood with three optional buttons. If you’re not into hoodies you can choose View B, a big collar with an optional epaulet. These neckline options are interchangeable between the two length options: a sweater or a longer version than can be worn as a dress or a tunic.

This design features princess seams that give a closer fit than traditional sweatshirts and create flattering vertical lines. The single welt pockets are set in these side seams and are connected by a tube pocket on the inside. Hem and cuffs are banded.

    I’ve made two versions of the Jasper sweater. One with hood out of a scuba knit fabric and one with the buttoned funnel neck out of fleece. I was really pleased with both, though the fleece one is my favourite. I made a video on YouTube about the process:

    I love this pattern. I wanted something warm and cozy for around the house but with a little bit of style, so that I look great when I nip out into the garden, rather than being caught by the neighbours in a very old and snuggly fleece that should not be seen!! Jasper fits the bill exactly, the princess seams give it a lovely fitted shape and the longer length of the sweater dress, complete with pouch pocket and cowl neck (or hood) makes for a really comfortable garment. I feel like I’m wearing my pjs but I don’t have to hide from the neighbours anymore!

    I made a size 4 and did not have to make any alterations, I’m about 5’9″ and the dress hits about 3″ above the knee, so it looks great with tights or leggings. I had no problem with the welt pockets, it was my first attempt at them and using the tutorial on the Paprika website was all the help I needed. I didn’t use the epaulet on the collar as I like to be able to wrap all of the fabric up around my neck when I’m sitting down.

    I really enjoyed making my Jasper and I think there will definitely be more.

    The first of three versions of the Jasper I’ve made, using a sweatshirt cotton with no stretch. I found the pattern very easy to use and the instructions very good. The procedure to make a welt pocket was new to me, so I watched a couple videos before attempting them for the first time.
    I made a size 3 which was a little snug under the arms in a fabric with no stretch.
    The Jasper is a great fit and so versatile. I recommend it to anyone.

    Second go at the Jasper is the Cowl Sweater version in a French Terry. I made a size 4, but should have stayed at a 3 in this stretchy fabric. This version of the Jasper gets a lot of wear. The welt pockets and princess seams are very flattering and you are not overwhelmed by a big cowl as some patterns can do.

    My third version of the Jasper is the cowl neck dress in a quilted jaquard. I added an underlining to the body of the dress to make sure it was warm and cozy for fall and winter and omitted the welt pockets because the fabric does not press nicely.
    This pattern works in a variety of fabrics which the designer is so kind to walk you though on her website along with other tutorials for you to succeed.
