Excellent pattern

I was impressed with the detailed directions with clear illustrations that made it easy to make this garment. My husband would like a pattern in his size now.

Awesome Pattern!

I tested this pattern and I love it because it's very versatile. You can make it with or without a hood, with or without the elbow patches, and depending on fabric and details you can make it for boys or girls. I made the version without the hood and used a purchased sweater knit, but this is also a great pattern for repurposing old sweaters. I also like this pattern because it looks like it's knit, but it's not. When my husband saw it, he asked, "Did you make that? I didn't think you knit." I had to tell him that yes, I made it, and no, I still don't knit! I definitely intend to make more of these sweaters.

Best sweater I've ever made

I just love this sweater pattern. It's very easy to stitch up. I love the raglan sleeves, which mean no sleeve setting!!! I can't wait to make more.

Cozy and cute!

This sweater is simply fantastic. It goes together easily and the instructions are clear and well thought out. I also love that there is a cowl and hood option! I'm a visual learner and find the pictures very helpful. Besides all this, it's adorable and well cut. Great for dolls of either gender!
