      The Chasing Butterflies Sweater sewing pattern is designed for 4-way stretch knit fabrics, ensuring both comfort and style in your creations.

      You have the freedom to choose from a variety of fabric options, such as a brushed sweater knit for cozy warmth during colder seasons or a lightweight waffle knit for a breathable and stylish layer during the summer. The possibilities are endless!

      • 4-way stretch knit fabrics.


      FABRIC SUGGESTIONS (fabric must have stretch in both directions)

      Sweater knit hacci (hatchi), merino wool, sweat-shirting, rib knit, double knit, waffle knit, liverpool, wool blends, jacquard knit, soft French terry, double brushed poly (DBP), single brushed poly (SBP), poly elastane knits, modal elastane, stretch lace, soft rib knits, stretch mesh (eg. Boo! Design), cotton lycra (think soft & light), cable knit, fluffy & brushed knits (eg. Lush Faux Alpaca or Cashmere).

      Fabrics with heavy drape can be used but ensure you take the personality of that fabric into account. These include bamboo, rayon & viscose elastane.

      Bulky fabrics or fabrics with lots of body can also be used. Again, you must take the personality of that fabric into account. If you’re expecting such a fabric to drape gently over the body, it will not.


      IMPORTANT REMINDER: This garment has a generous amount of drape and extra fabric intentionally, as it is inherent to its unique style. Understanding the characteristics and qualities of your fabric is important. Fabrics known for their drape, such as bamboo, modal, rayon, and viscose, will have a looser feel when worn. Conversely, thicker fabrics might contribute to a bulkier appearance. Fabrics with low resilience can result in the final garment fitting larger on the body. 

      Please consider these things when making your fabric choices.


      Projector files for this pattern include multi-coloured and black size lines, large text and full pattern pieces. Plus centre fold lines so you can cut on the fold if needed.

      Love the style

      Have made one and will make more, found it sized large.

      So comfy!

      I love how this top turned out. I wasn't too sure about the style but I am so glad I tried it! I have already cut a second and have a few others planned.

      Quick make with fab outcome

      I had a party to go to and made the palazzo pants in black from a swishy polyester. Then I needed a top. I had some velvet/velour in great colours so sewed that up in the chasing butterflies pattern. Looked great and it came together well in the limited time I had. I'll be making more!!
