The Hale Half Zips are designed to keep you warm and cozy without sacrificing style. With their loose and comfortable fit, multiple customization options, and unique seamlines, these pull-over garments are a must-have for your wardrobe. Whether you prefer an athletic look or a smart sweater style, this pattern has got you covered.
One of the standout features of the Hale Half Zip pattern is the ability to customize your creation.
Here are some of the options you can choose from:
- Necklines: Pick between a classic collar or a snug hood to top off your sweater.
- Lengths: Tailor your garment to your preference with various length options. Youth and Adult Hourglass styles offer cropped and longer shirt lengths, while Adult V Figure styles include short, regular, and tall options.
- Sleeves: Decide between solid sleeves for a clean look or go for colorblock sleeves to add some extra flair.
- Pockets: Opt for a kanga-style pocket to keep your hands warm and your belongings close by.
- Zipper Guard: Add a zipper guard for extra comfort and protection.
- Finishing Methods: Choose from unfinished seams, binding seams, or lined collar and hood options to give your garment a polished finish.
To achieve the best results with the Hale Half Zip pattern, it’s essential to use medium-weight, stable knits. Stable knits have less stretch, but don’t worry—only the cuffs and bottom band require stretch, so the other pieces can have mechanical stretch.
Specific Fabric Suggestions: Consider using fabrics like sweatshirt knit, French terry, double knits, quilted knits, stretch velvets, fleece, or even cuddle fabrics for a plush feel.
No matter who you’re sewing for, the Hale Half Zip pattern has you covered. The pattern includes an extensive range of sizes:
Adult Hourglass Sizes: XXS to Plus 5X
Adult V Figure Sizes: XXS to 6XL
