What else do I need?

Fabric recommendations: sweatshirt knit fabrics or fleeces, such as French terry, micro or polar fleeces, boiled wool, or wool blends. 10% stretch is recommended, but fabrics with a large amount of stretch, like ribbed knits, will make this sweater more difficult to sew. If choosing to color block this sweater, choose knit fabrics that have similar weight and stretch.

*See gallery image for fabric amount requirements based on size choice. Optional contrast collar/hood requirements also listed. Additional fabric may be required to match stripes, plaids, or using border prints.
