The Toaster Sweater #2 by Sew House Seven is semi-fitted through the upper arms and shoulders and fits loosely through the underarms to hem. This cozy top has a semi-high neckline that is inspired by funnel and boat neck designs. Split side vents, a slight high-low hem, and mitered corners provide this top with details that will inspire you to make this sweater over and over again.

Sew the Toaster Sweater in a sturdy ponte or boiled wool and you'll have a structured sweater that pairs with slacks, chinos, or jeans. When this is made in a looser knit or a jersey knit the resulting sweater will result in a casual and laid back look.

Additional Notes

This PDF pattern includes all pattern pieces and step-by-step instructions with illustrations.

I got this as part of a bundle and I was a little unsure of it at first due to the shape, which I felt may not suit me. Now that I've made it however, I love it. It is so super comfortable! I love the neckline and the vented sides, mitered corners are one of my favourite things to sew and they give this top the most beautiful finish. I'm super chuffed with this and what to make another one. The only thing I will say is that while I find the fit spot on, you may want to size up if you intend to use this as a layering item, it may be snug with a long sleeve tee underneath.

Pattern is easy to follow.

I really love this pattern and how it sewed up in a more structured fabric.

I love this pattern! I can't wait to make more of them :)

This was a great pattern. The top came together easily, and the fit is great.

Clear instructions on how to assemble the neckline and mitred corners!

I made three of these sweaters. Two were Christmas gifts to my daughters, made in steel grey fleece. I made mine out of a rose colored Fleece. Very easy, I got to use my new serger, very helpful on seams. I'm a little unhappy with the inside of the neck, but I'll fix that with my next toaster sweater.

I love this pattern!!! Already have another version planned.

I love how responsive Peggy is to questions and the Sew Along was great! I especially liked learning the method for mitering the corners and really liked the self facing.

The pattern was easy to download, print and follow.

Love this pattern !
