Bimaa Sweater

September 2013 283

So as I mentioned, there is this huge pattern bundle sale going on right now. The Sew Fab Sale and I’m not going to lie, this is my favorite pattern in the bundle.  I guess I can’t really say that because I haven’t had the chance to make every pattern but seriously, I LOVE this pattern.  It’s the Bimaa Sweater by Sarah at Lou Bee Clothing.Bimma Sweater, Red

 

The fit on it is so great.  I love a nice fitted hoodie on a girl, something about it makes it a bit more feminine, no matter what the print.  I also love the length of the sweater.  Sarah’s instructions and photos are so nice and clear.  Shirt patterns come together pretty quick for me now but I’d say a beginner could sew this sweater as well.September 2013 278 I’ve made this pattern twice now.  The first time around I made it too small.  My own fault, I picked a size smaller than I usually do for whatever reason and it was just too tight.  Second time around I sized up a bit and despite the fabric not having a ton of stretch it fits just right.

If you do decide to make this sweater I highly recommend you go with Sarah’s recommendations and use a four way stretch knit fabric.

I also love the large hood.  I used a fleece outer and lining on Ara’s and next time I think I would go with a lighter weight lining just because the hood is a bit stiff.

The pattern also comes with a cowl neck option or a shawl neck.  I plan to do the cowl neck next.
