What type of fabric or other materials did you use? French terry from my local shop.

Tell us about your project! I have a very special love for the Linden. It was the very first PDF pattern I bought as I was starting to sew for myself. It worked as a confidence booster and made me take the plunge into other patterns, simply because I realized I could sew something simple but still with great results.

It's the perfect "serger only" project and by now it just takes me around 15 minutes to sew one up. I always have it in hand in my tried'n true "Wall of Fame".

Even though it's quite simple construction wise, I've learned a lot about knits just by sewing it and also the perfect way to attach bands, whether neck or cuff ones.

This is my sixth Linden and I'm only missing one to cover the whole week, ha! The size is a 0 with no alterations: the fit results in a very comfortable sweater, sitting just at hip line and with enough ease to overlay with other pieces.

It's all about the fabric here: the french terry has a beautiful floral print that reminds an aquarelle painting and makes it something more than a regular sweatshirt. Not that there's anything wrong with that, a good old plain grey version was my first and still essential on my wardrobe. It's just my "hmm don't know what to wear tomorrow" piece one can whip up in no time!
