Veronika is a casual pullover shape that takes over the base of our Viktoria blouse. Due to the cuffs and the turtleneck and the omission of the typical blouse details, Veronika gets a sporty look and the perfect cuddle factor.
Length at center back = 77-83 cm.
In these instructions, Veronika was sewn from a Nicki fabric.
We recommend a sweatshirt , velor or a knit fabric .

Cut the pattern pieces out of yours outer fabric to. lay the fabric with the right side of the fabric facing up. Place the selvedges parallel to the center so that you Front part, back part, slip on the back and front can hang up in the break. The pattern pieces should all be face up. Always align the thread up arrow on all pieces in the same direction and parallel to the selvage of the fabric. Transfer all the notches from the pattern through a 3mm long incision with scissors or chalk and pinch the seam allowance in the fold of the fabric, because this is always a middle is. Markers define positions of Dart ends , pocket positions, etc. Transfer these either with chalk or a pin .

- 1x back part in break
- 1x front part in break
- 2x ribbed cuffs
- 2x sleeves in opposite directions
- Hem facing in the front and back in the break

To sew this sweater you need a sewing machine and an overlock sewing machine, alternatively you can use the zigzag stitch on your sewing machine to finish the raw edges. Be sure to use a jersey needle and use a stretch stitch, i.e. if you are sewing with a home sewing machine you should use either a zigzag stitch or the tripartite elastic stitch and then all seam allowances again with a zigzag stitch or another appropriate stitch neaten so they don't fray. In addition to the description, the colorful lines in the pictures show you where a seam needs to be sewn or something to be glued. When sewing, pay attention to the seam allowance included in the pattern. Seam allowances that are not specially marked are 1 cm wide! Happy sewing!
First close the shoulder seam. To do this, place the front and back shoulders right sides together and close the seam. Neat the seam together.
Press the shoulder seam back.
Sew the sleeve into the armhole, right sides together, using the snaps as a guide, the seam is then neatened together.
Iron the armhole seam toward the sleeve.
Next, sew the side seam and underarm seam in one go and neaten them together.
Mark the back hem facing with a needle in the center back, this will prevent the hem facings from being mixed up later. Check whether you have snapped the center back and front at the hem and at the facing strips, this will make it easier for you to pin them together. Close the hem facings right sides together to form a ring at the side seam. Press open the seam allowance.
Neat the top edge of the receipt strip.
Overturn the facing strip with the hem by placing the right sides of the fabric on top of each other. Attention: the back facing is marked with a needle and belongs on the back part. ;) Pin the section with several needles and close the seam.
Place the seam allowances on the slip and topstitch the seam allowance 0.7cm wide flat. When topstitching, make sure that the seam allowance/edge does not curl up but lies flat. This method not only makes the final ironing easier, but also means that the facing automatically lies inwards and does not roll out if it is not topstitched separately. Only the facing is stitched to the seam allowances. The stitching line can then only be seen from the wrong side of the fabric, but not from the right side.
The hem should now be 4cm wide.
Pin the slip in place with pins, making sure that the folded seam is on the inside, i.e. it cannot be seen from the outside. It is best to stick the needles long to the hem. This allows you to pull the needles out just before you sew over them.
The hem is now stitched 3.5cm wide from the right side. You can feel the edge of the facing with your fingers and sew along it.
Make sure that you don't slip off the inside edge of the receipt, but always stay on the receipt. Check that the edge of the receipt is flat and not curled.
You can now iron the slip inside out.
The finished quilted hem.
Next, the sleeve cuffs are sewn together right sides together and ironed in half. The two cut edges are neatened together with a little tension. Please also neaten the sleeve hem.
Mark the halfway point of the arm hem and the cuff with a needle. Tuck the sleeve into the cuff, the right sides of the fabric are on top of each other. The sleeve seam lies on the cuff seam, the marking needle on the two parts are also pinned together. Distribute the extra width of the sleeve hem evenly and close the seam while stretching the cuff to the sleeve.
The finished cuff.
Next, the collar is closed in the round and then the seam allowance is ironed out.
Now fold the collar in half, the seam allowance is on the inside and the upper edge of the collar is in the fold. Tuck the turtleneck into the neckline, the collar seam is in the center back. Now close the collar - neckline seam.
Overcast the neckline together.
Your sweater is now ready :)))
