If I come across a Burda magazine, I page through it, and if I find easy patterns that I like, I buy the mag. Which is how I found this easy Burda sweater pattern. Any pattern that doesn’t involve setting sleeves always get’s my vote.
You could take a sweater of your own and trace around the edges and make a similar pattern to this Burda sweater. I did the whole proper thing of tracing the pattern from the tangle of patterns all packed onto one sheet of paper. Bit of a mission to find the right pattern pieces.
You need: –
- rib knit
- matching thread for both
- pattern pieces
- sewing scissors
- sewing machine
You do: –
Firstly either trace or make your pattern piece.
The neck will be slightly lower at the front than the back.
Sew back and front together. Then snip into the curved areas to allow them to open out.
Pin and sew ribbing to neck and cuffs. I wish I had made my ribbing a bit wider. It was also too loose. I needed to make it tighter.
But the top worked out just fine. I feel a bit Dr Spock in it but I love it.
Have a fabulous green week.
