Giant. Cushy. Cozy. Sweater.

What’s not to love?

This is currently the only sewn sweater in my self-made wardrobe, and I really hope to change that soon. As much as I love knitting, there is something to be said for a sweater you can make in a morning.

I wanted a sweater that was cozy and easy – both while I was making it and when I wear it. So the fabric is a thick, cushy sweater knit, that I turning into a pullover with a giant cowl, and exposed seams.

The “pattern” is just 8 rectangles, strategically sewn together. 1 rectangle for the front, 1 for the back, 2 for the sleeves, and 4 rectangles for the yoke/cowl.

And the sweater turned out to be exactly what I wanted it to be.

Giant. Cushy. Cozy. Easy. The perfect winter sweater.

  1. Interesting design, it indeed looks very cosy. The idea of being able to finish a sweater in one morning is a bit mind boggling for me. I should really really learn how to sew apparently!
