elliot sweater in merino wool

I’m going to start by saying that this was theĀ quickest sew I’ve had in a long time, and it was so refreshing! This was cut, sewn, pressed and hanging in my closet in about 3 hours. It was so quick, I might even make another one this afternoon!

This is my brand new Elliot Sweater by Helen’s Closet, sewn up in a buttery soft, ash blue, premium 195gsm merino wool from The Fabric Store.

This is such a well drafted pattern, and there are so many things I love about it. The raglan sleeve makes sewing a breeze, and the oversized style makes picking a size easy.

The collar is soooo lovely! It’s just the right size, I don’t have to stretch it to get it over my head. It’s also slouchy enough that I don’t feel like I’m being strangled by my jumper.

The high-low hem is just a dream, and the split is the perfect length for me. I really like how thick the hems are as well, I find it gives a bit of weight which makes it hang nicely.

The great thing about this pattern is that Helen has included a few different variations. There is also a crop length, with a shorter collar, and a t-shirt version.

Snuggly and warm is an understatement! I’m off to sew another!
