This sweater is a grown up version of the classic hoodie. This pattern is from the Alpine collection of Adventure Menswear by Thread Theory. It will be a wardrobe staple due to its cozy boxy shape and hard wearing cuffed hems but there is no worry of looking like a slob while wearing it! Both versions contain stylish features that elevate it beyond pure utilitarianism: Variation 1 features a unique squared neckline and a stylish shawl collar. It also includes an optional neckline facing that can be used to feature contrast fabrics as a finishing touch to the garment interior. Variation 2 includes a roomy lined hood that crosses over at the front to join to the squared neckline as well as the classic kangaroo pocket to protect hands from the elements. This pattern, as part of the Alpine Outdoors Collection, is a hard-wearing design with a classic fit. Create a hand-made wardrobe of these designs so as to always be comfortably and stylishly ready for the next adventure!
Skill: Beginner | Sizing: XS – XXL
Fabric: Medium weight knit fabrics or fleece. A contrast knit or woven fabric can be used for the decorative neck facing as well as for the hood lining. Stable knits or fleeces without much stretch will work for the body of the sweater but it is best to choose knits with some stretch or ribbing for the cuffs and hem band.
