From Paper Theory:
// Inspired by the classic turtlenecks worn by the beatniks in the 1960s, and later by the political protesters of feminist and Black civil rights movements in the 1970s. //
The LB pullover is a quick and easy to sew jumper with full length sleeves, designed to be made in a low stretch fabric or a woven. It comes with two options. Option A is a turtle neck, option B is a regular crew neck.
The body is cut wide and boxy with a relaxed fit and low dropped shoulders. The dropped shoulders enable the style to have ample room around the bicep but still allow the sleeves to be cut straight and slim so you have the golden combination of comfort without being swamped in fabric, and the jumper still looks polished.
Recommended Fabric: Almost anything!
The pattern was designed with a low - medium stretch fabric in mind like sweat shirting, knitted jersey or Ponte. However, it is cut with enough ease and a wide neck so it can also be made in a woven fabric and looks beautiful in linen.
Ability level: Absolute beginner / Quick Sew.
The LB Pullover only requires seaming the pieces together and hemming.
