Not everyone sees the joy in sewing with knits. I admit there are some that are pretty “curly” on the cut edges and that can be a bit challenging.
Our new sweater knits are the easiest knits I have ever worked with. Before cutting, I always launder my fabric so I will know if it will be a joy to wear later! These knits went in the washer on warm and the dryer on warm and they emerged perfect!
The Toaster Sweaters$19.99
The sizes run XS to XXL so there is room for us all.
Version 1 is the raglan sleeve and slight turtleneck design. I didn’t want the band at my waist so I just added the length to the bottom of the pattern. I did love the sleeve band as it helps to keep the sleeves pushed up.
Yardage for this version: XS-S: 1 3/4yd; M-L: 2 yds XL-XXL: 2 1/4yds
Version 2 has the mitered hem. It was so easy to do since my knit didn’t curl. The back is a bit longer and it looks great on. The double needle on my sewing machine made the hem so easy to stitch.
Yardage for this version: XS-M: 1 3/4yd; L – 2yds; XL-XXL 2 1/2yds
These are our sweather knits that I would recommend for any of our knit patterns. Loulou Knit was used in Version 2 of the Toaster Sweaters.
These would be great choices for Version 1 of the Toaster Knits.
