Color-blocked Jasper Sweater Paprika Patterns

I fell in love with Jasper Sweater from Paprika Pattern from the moment it was released….and I kept on postponing my purchase because…you know…I have so many patterns I need to make…eventually I gave in and immediately put it on top of my sewing list!

Mi sono innamorata della felpa Jasper di Paprika Patterns dal momento in cui e’ uscita…e poi ho rimandato l’acquisto perche’….si sa…ho talmente tanti cartamodelli da fare…alla fine ho ceduto e l’ho messa in cima alla lista!

I don’t usually wear sweatshirts other than when I’m home or when I go to the gym…but Jasper is a more dressy sweatshirt I find…I made it just before Christmas and it’s been getting loads of wear…I’m actually wearing it as I’m typing this post!

Di solito non metto le felpe tranne che quando sono a casa o vado in palestra…ma trovo che Jasper sia una felpa elegante…l’ho finita prima di Natale e l’ho messa molto…infatti ce l’ho addosso proprio ora mentre scrivo questo post!

I had this ponte knit in my stash…leftover from previous projects…that’s why I got creative with color blocking!

Avevo questo tessuto punto Milano tra le scorte…avanzi di altri progetti…per questo sono stata creativa con l’abbinamento dei colori!

And now some details on the pattern. Looking at the finished measurements I went for a size 2. There’s quite some ease at the waist and the sweater doesn’t really hit the hips…that’s why I could get away with it.

The instructions are very detailed. Next time I would however baste the mid pocket welt…it didn’t turn out perfect. I also serged the sweater throughout…I find it’s nicer even though as the pattern correctly says… it’s not necessary as knit don’t ravel.

E ora qualche dettaglio sul cartamodello. Guardando le misure del capo finito ho deciso di tagliare la taglia 2. C’e’ molta vestibilita’ in vita e la felpa non arriva ai fianchi…per questo ho potuto scegliere quella taglia.

Le istruzioni sono molto dettagliate. Pero’ la prossima volta imbastiro’ le tasche al centro perche’ il risultato non e’ stato perfetto. Ho rifinito tutti i margini con la taglia e cuci…trovo che il risultato sia piu’ professionale anche se come viene detto nelle istruzioni non e’ necessario perche’ la maglina non si sfilaccia.

I’d love to make another…plus two more as gifts to my mom and sis…by next winter 😉

Have you made any Paprika Patterns yet?

p.s. I made the pants too by rubbing off an existing pair 😉

Vorrei farne un’altra…e altre due da regalare a mia mamma e mia sorella…per l’inverno prossimo 😉

Avete gia’ cucito qualche modello di Paprika Patterns?

p.s. ho cucito anche i pantaloni copiando il modello da un paio che avevo 😉

  1. I love your choice of colors! The sweater looks great – and not casual at all, despite the fabric type. I’ve not tried a paprika pattern to date but they look very interesting – they always look to have unusual seam lines and special details.

    1. Thanks Evie. Choosing what we feel may suit our bodies is often best to avoid frustrations…recently I tried a loose sweatshirt and I am still not convinced about it…it’s like when I go to the hairdresser and try a new style ;o) Sometimes being conservative is not a bad thing!

  2. Bella felpa! Anche l’accostamento di colori mi piace molto! Anch’io non ero una da felpa, ma quest’inverno mi sono convertita e questa Jasper la metto nella mia wishlist. Un abbraccio
