The favorite sweater from Ellie and Mac is my new favorite sweater!
It's got such a cute off the shoulder and can be worn two ways. There's the nice big cowl that feels so cozy for Fall and then there's the more sophisticated banded top version.
This one makes me feel like I'm saying "You have a baby, in a bar...."
I got both out of a generous 2 yard cut of french terry from a Sincerely Rylee Zebra Sweater Mystery Box. For the big sweater cowl, I used a scrap from a Sincerely Rylee scrap pack. For the bands on the banded option I used a cotton lycra remnant from Hobby Lobby.
I've been doing a lot of Ellie and Mac patterns lately. The 2XL fits me well, I only adjust a tiny bit for height. The overlapping pages give me confidence that I assembled them correctly and leaves me room to do that tiny height adjustment! They're almost always having a sale. Patterns release at a discount, on top of the sale price! So they're usually $3.85 on the day I blog them. On Wednesdays, the patterns rotate through being on sale for $1 (Wacky Wednesday).
Here are some of my other blog posts about Ellie and Mac Patterns.
