As soon as the days get shorter again and you need a cozy, warm sweater, we can definitely convince you with the Pamela pattern. The wide, loose shape is not constricting anywhere, but has a decent fit due to a bust dart. The detail par excellence is the large and wide turtleneck, which you can turn up or simply let fall down. This results in a beautiful neckline, which also leaves enough space for comfortable dressing. Length at center back = 62-68 cm.
The casual turtleneck sweater Pamela from this pattern was sewn from sweat fabric.
We recommend a thicker knit, thicker sweat fabric or softly falling faux fur.

Cut the pattern pieces out of fabric and transfer the notches from the pattern. In addition to the description, the colorful brackets in the pictures show you where a seam needs to be sewn.
- 1x front part in break
- 1x back in break
- 1x sleeve opposite
- 1x front collar in break
- 1x rear collar in break
- 1 piece of ribbon (velvet ribbon here)
Lay the front piece on the back piece right sides together and sew both the shoulder and side seams.
Right sides together, fold one sleeve in half and sew the arm seam. Repeat for the other sleeve.
Using the snaps, place the matching sleeve right sides together in the jumper and fasten the sleeve head all the way around. Repeat on the other side.
Neaten the hem of the sleeves as well as the pullover all around and iron the hem inwards by 3 cm. Stitch the hems tightly.
Place the two collar pieces right sides together and sew the side seams.
Turn the collar right side out and halve it vertically so that the seams you just sewn disappear on the inside. Pull the collar over the sweater so that its shoulder seams meet the side seams of the collar (marked here with staples) and all three open fabric edges are on top of each other.
Sew all three layers of fabric together.
A tape is sewn onto the back collar to stabilize the pullover. Sew the shaping band to the back collar seam inside the seam allowance.
To do this, fold one open side inwards by 1 cm and start stitching the tape from the shoulder seam to just before the other shoulder seam. Again, fold the open edge inwards by 1 cm and lock the seam well at the end.
This is what it looks like sewn up.
Congratulations, your sweater Pamela is finished!
