The Southbank Sweater and Sweater Dress is a cosy yet stylish knit pattern designed to become a spring and winter wardrobe workhorse. With a slightly oversized fit, funnel neck and drop-shoulders, Southbank is on-trend, comfortable and flattering. Oh, and unbelievably quick and easy to sew!
Version 1 is a sweater dress with a sweatshirt-inspired hem band and side-seam pockets, easy to dress up or down. Version 2 is a hip-length top suitable for wearing over trousers or pencil skirts when made in a ponte or similar, or ideal for tucking into high-waisted garments if made in a lighter-weight fabric.Version 3 is a cropped sweater designed to finish at the natural waist. All three variations feature slouchy, slightly over-long sleeves with cuffs.
The pattern comes with detailed illustrated instructions and a page of tips for sewing with knits for beginners.

All three options work well in medium-weight knits with up to 20% stretch, such as ponte roma, boiled wool, sweatshirt fabric. Version 2 also works beautifully in lighter-weight jerseys which give a softer, drapier look.
