Kwik Sew Sweatshirts Unlimited Book is ideal for sewing with Knitwit knit fabrics and in particular, with Knitwit Fuzzbuster Fleece which is available in a big range of colours.
The master pattern included in the book is for a sweatshirt (tracksuit top) in 8 different sizes using a drop shoulder style which suits heavier fabrics like fleece.
If you prefer an on the shoulder sleeve, or if you are using a lightweight knit (t-shirt weight), we recommend that you use the knit top pattern included in Easy Sewing the Kwik•Sew Way.
The book includes many variations for necklines, hems, sleeve finishes, design changes, decorative finishes and much more. With the help of the book, you can design a sweatshirt for any occasion from sporty to a dressier look.
The master pattern includes eight unisex sizes from a children’s size 10 to extra-large adult. This means you can use the master pattern for the entire family.
The multi-sized master pattern is printed on durable white paper with colour coded lines for each size. The patterns are printed on both sides of the paper to include as many sizes and designs as possible.
All of the master pattern pieces include 1/4” (6 mm) seam allowances. This is the best seam allowance to use when sewing sweatshirts. You can use a regular sewing machine or an overlocker.
You will need to trace the master patterns using Knitwit Polytrace as they are printed on both sides of the paper. This also means you can use the master pattern again and again. (In Kwik Sew books and patterns Knitwit Polytrace is often referred to as “tracing cloth made of transparent pressed fibers”. If you want to use the patterns in any of these books, you will need Knitwit Polytrace).
