Today I’m back to share with you my first make of 2017: the ultimate DIY cozy winter sweater. This sweater was made using a chunky knit fabric I bought at S.R. Hrris in Minneapolis when I was back home for Christmas. I purchased the fabric for only $7.99/yard so this total project cost was $24. I also used a pattern I’ve had success with in the past, a layered sweater knit pattern from Butterick 6247. For more project details, read on.
You may recognize this sweater from last year if you’ve been reading my blog for awhile. I first stitched this up in a cozy sweater fleece about 12 months ago. You can read about that project here. What I most envy about these two side by side photos is my long hair. Dayum what was I thinking?!
I highly recommend Butterick 6247. I made this sweater from start to finish in just under 2.5 hours. Super easy, especially if you own a serger. All of the hemming was done using the narrow rolled hem feature on my serger.
The multiple layers on this sweater add to the super cozy, lounge around at home, feel.
Fortunately, we finally had a sunny day so I could get some shots outside under the sun.
I’ve already worn this sweater a few times so please excuse the wrinkles.
Do you have a favorite sweater pattern? I’d love to hear about it! Link up in the comments.
Tomorrow I travel to San Francisco. Excited to visit Britex Fabrics. Hopefully I’ll have some good pics to share with ya’ll upon my return. Happy Mother Effin’ Friday!
