Sidney is a boxy sweatshirt with a loose crew neck and finger skimming sleeves.
Skill level – beginner. Seam allowance 1cm.
To get the structured boxy shape of Sidney, choose a medium to heavy weight cloth. Sweat shirting, jersey loopback and our cotton jacquards are ideal. For the ribbing we sell pre cut strips.
You will need:
Ribbing. If you are using our pre cut ribbing you will need 3 strips for sizes 6 – 14 and 4 strips for sizes 16 – 18. We have done a blog where we make suggestions on which ribs go with each jacquard colours – you can see that here. Note – you can leave the ribbing off of the bottom of the sweatshirt, in which case you will only need 2 strips for all sizes.
