Many of you love simple and quickly sewn items of clothing. Our Pulli Pony Hat fits exactly into this category. The sweater has a rather narrow silhouette, extra-long sleeves and a boat neckline with a waterfall effect in the front. To achieve this effect ideally, you should use a softly draping fabric. Length at center back = 58-65 cm.
The chic Pony Hat sweater with a slight waterfall neckline was sewn from a viscose jersey in these instructions.
We recommend soft, fine knit or jersey.
|0.5-1.0 cm wide
Cut the pattern pieces out of fabric and transfer the clips 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 the break
- 1x back part in the break
- 1x sleeve opposite
- 1 piece of shaping ribbon (here velvet ribbon)
Finish the top edges of the front and back pieces.
Place the front piece on the back piece, right sides together, and close the shoulder seam and the top corner.
When making this seam, it's important that you use a regular sewing machine because when you get to the corner, you can leave the needle in the fabric, lift the sewing foot and get the fabric into the right position. This will give you a nice corner.
Cut a clip in the corner just before the seam.
The back piece is now in front of you with its left side of fabric facing up. Then fold the top corner over the shoulder seam up to the corner so that the two seams are exactly on top of each other. Sew it on the seam again.
If you are using a soft knitted fabric, it is a good idea to sew the shaping band onto this seam so that the seam of the sweater is stabilized and does not wear out later.
Now when you turn the collar it will automatically lie down nicely and you won't see any visible seams from above.
Close the side seams of the sweater right sides together.
Place the sleeve right sides together and close the inner arm seam.
Depending on the fabric, it may be advisable to neaten the hem. Iron it 3cm inwards and stitch it in place.
Do the same for the other sleeve and the hem of the sweater.
Turn the sweater inside out again, the sleeve stays on the right. Mark the upper middle of the sleeve and the inner arm seam. In the next step, these meet the shoulder seam and the side seam of the sweater.
Pin the matching sleeve into the armhole, right sides together, and close the seam all the way around. Repeat with the other sleeve.
Congratulations, your sweater pony hat is ready!
