The Whistler Sweater and Hoodie is a loose fitting pullover with an inset yoke. The yoke can be made with either the shawl collar or hoodie. The in-seam pockets are an essential element to any pullover. Shirt and tunic lengths are included as well as options for a banded bottom, straight hem, or curved hem. The middle portion can be gathered or flat depending on fabric selection. This top is great for a variety of knit fabrics, everything from sweatshirt fleece to sweater knit. Make it maternity by using a drapey fabric with the gathered front. The yoke ends a couple inches below the bust which also makes it nursing friendly.

The pattern is rated as intermediate. However, a short video is included to help with the most technical step.

This pattern features layers and trimless pattern assembly.

Included with your print at home pattern is a large format file that prints on two A0 sheets. You may send this large format file to your local or online copy shop. Instruct them to print actual size with no scaling.

    I could go on and on about how much I love the Whistler! When I first saw it I wasn’t sure I would like it, or even wear it, and now I have plans to make so many more for myself and as Christmas presents! It is the perfect mix of casual and cute. The instructions are clear (there is even a video!) and you can just sew on the buttons if button holes scare you 😉

    This is the coziest sweater ever! I love the optional facing to finish the bottom, or you can hem it or band it! With the hood or Shawl color, different length options, and the absolutely huge bit not bulky at pockets-it’s my favorite. Plus – I can nurse in it!! The construction of this pattern is top notch and even though pieces look all crazy when cutting it out the instructions are incredibly clear. Love it!

    As we have come to expect from Love Notions patterns, the Whistler has clear concise directions which will lead you to a distinctive garment that collects compliments. And also as we’ve come to expect, there are many options so you can keep making the Whistler and have it look like a different pattern each time. I was concerned that this might be a tricky sew, but quickly learned that it’s not at all difficult. Very happy indeed with my new Whistler!

    This is such a comfortable pullover! I love that when you make the hoodie it doesn’t have a big kangaroo pocket in the front–it’s different. As always, instructions are very clear and construction was easy. You can dress it up for work or casual for the weekend. A new staple in my closet!

    love how easy this is to put together. the pockets are a great place to hold the phone and wallet so I do not need to bring a purse. I like that the pattern comes in bigger sizes

    I made this for my daughter who is now 6 months pregnant. She loves it!!! She likes to wear hoodies, so this is the dressy version. I can see it will get a lot of use 🙂

    I cut it out one night and sewed it up the next day, it looked complicated but went together very easily. I love how cozy it is and will make a few more, and I think it`ll make great gifts. I will be making one for my daughter as she is tall, the tunic length with a hood and thumb holes will be perfect for her!!!!

    Love this top! Clever construction and so very well drafted that I didn’t even need to use the notches. I have made both the shawl and hoodie and am very happy with both versions.

    This top looks difficult, but it is really simple to sew! Took me 2 hours (already had it cut out). I wear mine very often. Great for layering in the winter, cool summer nights, or warmish fall nights at football games! I need to make more!
