I got to test another pattern for Kymy from EYMM (Everything Your Mama Made).
This time it was for a cowl neck sweater (affiliate).
It’s really cute, and wasn’t hard to make, especially considering I haven’t sewn all that much with knits. The trickiest part was making the cowl, but she added extra pictures after we did the test so that step should be clearer in the tutorial now.
For this I repurposed an old men’s medium sized sweater that had a small hole in it. I used the bottom band of the sweater as the bottom band for this so I didn’t need to do any hemming (I adjusted how much I cut though to accommodate not needing to hem). The cowl is made with some new jersey knit that was leftover from another project, so this is another $0 project, yay!
My only concern with this was having a cowl neck on a baby since it could possibly shift and flip up over their faces but Kymy from EYMM includes directions on where to tack down the cowl to prevent that.
I think in all it took about 2 (uninterrupted) hours to make, probably will be faster for the next one since I know how to make the cowl now. 🙂

The pattern comes in two size bundles: children sizes NB to 18 tween, and women’s XS to 5X. Priced at just under $10 each size range, or you can get the bundle with both size ranges for under $17. Considering that there are many patterns out there with smaller size ranges priced more expensively than that, I think it’s a pretty good deal. It’s on my list of selfish sewing projects for after Christmas!
