Of the many projects that I  have in the weaving-in-ends stage of knitting, I chose to finish this one first because chunky knits are always the easiest to handle.   The original pattern called for Rowan Big Wool, but I just substituted Lion Brand’s Wool-Ease Thick and Quick (in Cobalt) in its place.

I mis-calculated using 10 skeins for this project, because I ended up with 3 full skeins left over.

Let me tell you, this thing is warm and comfy.  Now that the weather has chilled a bit, I can picture myself getting cozy on the couch wrapped up in my Faeroe with a nice cup of tea.

T- Shirt from Burda 6/2008 Version 109B

Pattern Sizing:
Size 34-44 cut out size 44.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes. Although I did forget one line of top-stitching.

Were the instructions easy to follow?

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked the pattern.

Fabric Used:

Blue Jersey probably from Joann’s

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

Yes, I would do both.


I always like to have a cover up when I’m working out. The pattern called for a 16″ zipper which was WAY too short, so I picked up an 18″ zipper and its slightly too long.
