Best of 2022: LB Pullover
The LB pullover is a quick and easy to sew jumper with full length sleeves, designed to be made in a low stretch fabric or a woven. It comes with two options. Option A is a turtle neck, option B is a regular crew neck. The body is cut wide and boxy with a relaxed fit and low dropped shoulders. The dropped shoulders enable the style to have ample room around the bicep but still allow the sleeves to be cut straight and slim so you have the golden combination of comfort without being swamped in fabric, and the jumper still looks polished.
Pattern: LB Pullover from Paper Theory
Skill Level: Beginner
What you should know (or desire to learn) Sewing with knits, hemming, attaching a neckband
Fabric: Ocean Blue Cotton French Terry
The sister to our favorite cotton fleece we offered in our hoodie boxes, this french terry has a looped back and smooth jersey face. The flexible drape will give just the right amount of structure to the pullover, while the color - a muted blue-green that oozes calm - will keep you cool and serene. Pair it with jeans or sweatpants for a hint of color on cold February days. A gorgeous knit!
Also in this box: Matching thread, twill tape for shoulders, and a sewing machine needle
This is my first time trying a Needle Sharp kit and I am impressed! Everything I needed to make my pullover came beautifully packaged. The LB Pullover is very simple but stylish and it sewed up in no time. I know I will use this pattern over and over. The ocean blue French terry is lovely quality. I’ll be trying more of the kits.
