After I finished Doc’s Catagonia fleece and I posted about fashion fleeces, it was inevitable that I made one for myself. This is sherpa fleece from Joann and nylon supplex from The Rain Shed, with long prong KAM Snaps and wide foldover elastic (from Etsy) for the hems.


I used the Green Pepper Polar Pullover again, traced off in a small. I figured out there’s 9 inches of ease in the sizing–my measurements would have put me in a medium, but the small is still fashionably oversized.

The pattern has some nice finishing details that I didn’t show in Doc’s, including a covered neckline seam and a hanging loop:

This baby is WARM, almost as warm as a coat, so I’m not wearing it in the house yet since the weather is still pretty mild. But I can wear it out on walks or hikes and people will think, “What a cool Patagonia!”
