Sew House Seven The Toaster Sweaters (Beginner)

(3 reviews) Write a Review


  The Toaster Sweaters consist of two different high neck top designs to keep you toasty warm and stylish in the cooler months. They are both very simple to sew and perfect for sewists of all levels who want to try their hand at sewing knits. These sweaters are designed to be constructed using knit fabric with at least 20% stretch around the width of the body.

Sweater #1: Is a closer fitting, semi-cropped sweatshirt/sweater. It works best when sewn in thick, stiff knits with some body to keep the neck standing upright. It features raglan sleeves, a wide waistband, a loose turtleneck, long cuffs and falls between the high and low hip. It’s great in a standard sweatshirt fleece (with stretch) however, it’s also extremely handsome in a sweater knit to dress it up a bit.

Sweater #2: Is an easy top/sweater that can be dressed up or down. It is somewhat fitted through the shoulders and sleeves and then swings out a bit at the underarms and hem. It features a semi-high-neck that takes its inspiration from funnel and boat necks. It also has mitered side vents with a hi-low hem that is 1” shorter in the front than the back. The front hem falls just below the high hip. Sew it in a boiled wool knit, a wool jersey or ponte for a more dressed up look. Sew it in a sweatshirt fleece (with stretch) or jersey knit for a more casual look. 

This is a beginner level pattern.  Sizes XS - XXL

    My first attempt at making a garment in a knitted fabric went brilliantly with this pattern.
    It was easy to follow with good instructions. I have put off sewing knitted/stretchy items before but this has given me the confidence to try more. Great pattern for beginners.

    I made the toaster sweater 1. I found the pattern really easy to follow and true to size. I didn't need to make any alterations. It was fun to sew and didn't take too long. Approx 2 hrs
