All files are PDF files that can be printed at home on Letter or A4 sized paper. Each pattern includes one file for the pattern and print-at-home pieces, and another file containing the copy shop A0 (33.1″ wide) pattern pieces. We’ve placed the pattern pieces on individual layers so you can print only the size(s) you need, saving you on paper and ink.
You will need light to heavy weight knit fabric with at least 40% 4-way stretch. You will want a sturdier fabric if doing the funnel/mock neck option or the cowl neck option. They will not sit or hang correctly if the fabric drapes. Brushed French Terry and Cotton Lycra French Terry or heavier sweater knits are perfect for heavier fabrics. Ribbed knit, bamboo lycra, and DBP are great for lighter weights.
If making the hood, you may want cording and grommets, though they are not required.
