Sweaters & Turtlenecks // 1 Day // Oct 21

It's finally sweater weather! Add to your handmade wardrobe this fall with a turtleneck shirt or funnel neck sweater that you can sew together in just a few hours. This workshop has FOUR different patterns to choose from. Whether you like a traditional fitted turtleneck you can wear with layers or a looser fit with jeans, we've got a pattern to suit you!

Workshop pattern options: 

Rise/Fall Turtleneck by Papercut Patterns. Two variations. The "Rise" View is a chic fitted turtleneck while the "Fall" variation is a dropped shoulder in a loose fit. Perfect for layering and wearing under dresses and jumpsuits. Sizes 0-8.

Elliott Sweater by Helen's Closet: Make this a relaxed turtleneck or funnel neck sweater depending on your fabric choice. Three length variations and sleeve options. We will not be making the high/low hem. Sizes 0-30

Jarrah Sweater (view D) by Megan Nielsen. We'll be making View D only due to timing. We can show you how to adjust the length of the sleeves. Sizes 0-20 or 14-30.
