    Great unisex sweatshirt, easy for the beginner that I am. Everyone in the family got one for Christmas even the 3 year old had the matching Sideline sweatshirt

    Hubby is really fussy about his jumpers and despite buying him several over the years, his daughter and I watch them sit in the cupboard!! I decided to make a fleece tailgate….(no hood or pocket) as a surprise. (If I’d asked, he’d have said no!) He absolutely loves it. I had to use an old sweater for sizing…….then had to take it in when he tried it on. It soon fitted beautifully and he hasn’t stopped wearing it…….until I made him another, after measuring him, because he chose the fleece. Again, he loved it……I suspect I will be making more!

    This is a great pattern for the whole family! I made red and black plaid matching hoodies for the whole family for Christmas and everyone loved theirs. I also used this pattern earlier for birthday presents. I know I will continue to use it over and over again. Thanks for this one!

    I LOVE this pattern! My husband is very picky about his sweatshirts, but this one did it for him! I had several attempts with other patterns, hacking Love Notion patterns and still no happy results, so as soon as this pattern was released I snatched it up and made it the same day! Now he owns 3 tailgate sweatshirts, and I even made one for myself! Super easy pattern!!
