Megan Nielsen Jarrah Sweatshirt

Happy New Year from the Little Round House.  I’ve been doing quite a bit of sewing over the last few weeks but not much blogging – it’s been pretty cold and damp around these parts so taking photos outside hasn’t seemed very appealing.

In the winter I pretty much live in sweatshirts and so when I saw this pattern come out I immediately wanted it.I’m already a big fan of Megan Nielsen patterns and the Jarrah sweatshirt looked so cosy plus with 4 style options I snapped it up as soon as it was available.This is version A but with the version D funnel neck (turtle neck/polo neck?? … I’m never entirely sure about the naming of this type of neckline)I’m a UK size 8-10 and so I cut the size 2 which fit perfectly. I probably should have shortened the arms by an inch but it feels so comforting to have sleeves that you can pull over your fingers in the winter.As always with this pattern company the instructions were perfect and it went together very quickly and easily.The fabric is from Fabric HQ and they still have some here. It’s gorgeous to wear, really warm and soft and fleecy inside.

I’ll definitely be trying the other versions, I love the look of the tie waist.
