One of the best parts of being part of the Sew Fab pattern bundle is that I got to get my mitts on some of the loveliest patterns out there. This one is the Infinity Sweater by OneGirlCircus. (As of this posting, it is only available in the bundle.)
It is a great quickie project / beginner pattern. It boasts only 3 pattern pieces and no hemming. I had some help with the kids on Saturday and was able to bang out the sweater in an hour and a half from first cut to last seam. An hour and a half!!!! I mean I know I’m much more efficient at sewing without the kids around, but dang….
I did tweak the pattern a bit for the fabric that I used. The pattern calls for a drapey knit which then can be wrapped in all sorts of ways, but ummm.. yeah. lace ponte knit? heck yeah! Ponte knit is thick and doesn’t have much stretch so I wouldn’t be able to wrap the sweater. So, I shortened the front pieces to 24″ wide. (I also raised up the neckline a few inches , because I wanted it to feel extra snug and cozy.) The sweater is no longer “Infinite” in styling, but it is infinitely cozy so I am happy.
oh! Randomly, it was FREE ADMISSION DAY at the Carnegie Museum of Art and Natural History last Sunday. We have to take full advantage of these sorts of things now that it costs our family approximately $5,895, 39.24 to get into museums and such. Bonus points for providing a neat location for taking style photos, as silly as I felt doing it.
Sorry. I just got sidetracked by my heart exploding. What was I talking about again? oh yes, The sweater!
The Infinity Sweater! A project so quick, you still have time to go to museums with your family. Oh, and take a shower! But not put on makeup. We win some, we lose some. Or something.
