When indie pattern month announced “New to me” as a challenge I had a few to choose from. I have the chalk and notch Farah shirt; French Navy Patterns Orla dress; or ikatee JIM trousers. Last weeks entrance was also new to me with By Hand London.
This is the Papercut patterns Bowline sweater made in pinky purple sweatshirt fabric from fabricland.
This was a super quick make (2 hours from start to finish once my pattern was stuck together). I really like the quirky detailing of the shoulder twist to what is essentially a basic raglan sweater.
The burrito roll was a bit fiddly to create the twisted section. I initially tacked it together to manage sure I joined the correct two pieces (which I hadn’t first time around!) which made it much easier to understand what I was doing.
I had to make the waist band in two sections to fit on my fabric remnant but that was okay as i just matched the side seams.
