It is really popular among the home sewers to make T-shirts, sweatshirts and other garments out of knit fabrics. I have seen lots of vlogs and Instagram posts presenting this kind of makes and there are many online and offline patterns for jumpers, T-shirt, sweatshirts, hoodies, cardigans, jersey dresses, even pants, leggins and swimsuits. There is also a large selection of jerseys, French terries and sweat fabrics offered in shops on- and offline. But I don´t remember sewing jerseys, or some really unique accidents of sewing knits happened in my life ages ago, I hardly remember anything. So the new idea of sewing a sweater using a sewing machine came, as many nowadays, from the Internet.
When the Winter comes, you strive for cosy things and all the vloggers and Instagrammers promote sweaters and jumpers during this cold season. But as a novice, I was at that time finishing my summer and autumn garments out of the fabrics I purchased before, in the Summer. But I was being tempted. In the November issue of Burda I saw a very easy and nice pattern I liked at first sight and then I was looking for a proper fabric. There came Andrea´s life show on her youtube channel, which she helds every Sunday. Finally, in March, I got my hands on some of beautiful jerseys from her online shop Beyond the Pink Door. And I knew that this mint thick cable knit will be working well together with the Burda Style super easy pattern Nº113_11_2020
And I am absolutely happy with the result! I think it turned out wonderful! I know also that there is another popular pattern which is recommendable for any jersey and works ideally together with this fabric. The final effect is very similar to Burda´s pattern. I am talking about the company Sew House Seven release: The Toaster Sweaters. One or the other will perfect.
