I don’t know about where you live, but here fall came in with a sneaky punch to the face here… and I am so glad to have my cozy Lumberjacks to snuggle up with this unusually chilly weather! Now you can have them to grab when the chilly weather sneaks up on you!
There is nothing I love more in the colder months then getting out my flannel shirts! I love to throw them on over a t-shirt in the cool mornings, tie them around my waist in the warmer afternoons. It’s something I have always had in my closet every year! So when you’re ready to cuddle up grab your cozy brushed flannel, sherpa, minky, and the Lumberjack pattern and make magic!
You can pick from a traditional collar, collar stand and woven cuffs or go with a more relaxed look with the hood and knit cuffs. Keep it a lighter layer with the unlined option. This is a very oversized look perfect for layering on top even bulky sweaters. Or you can line it with something warm and cozy for a jacket. No matter what you can add all the pockets! Chest pockets and in seam pockets for all the things you need to carry and to make sure you have somewhere to cozy your hands in too. The Lumberjack is drafted for woven/non-stretch fabrics like flannel, lightweight denim, lightweight wool and the like. You can line it with more flannel, cotton spandex, french terry, micro fleece, sherpa… depending on how warm you’d like it. For the knit cuffs you can grab a cotton spandex, ribbed knit, french terry, fleece. The hood can be made from a woven/non-stretch like the main shirt or a knit. The options for the Lumberjack include:
- Collar and Collar Stand
- Inseam pockets for both unlined and lined options
- Chest Pockets
- Woven Cuffs or Knit Cuffs
The youth sizes range from 3m – 14 and the adult sizes are for the full, newer size chart, extending from XXS – Plus 5X for the Hourglass Figure and XXS-6XL for the V Figure. *Want to learn more about how to measure yourself for these pattern?

Would you please give me a clearer understanding of V-figure and X-Figure? I couldn’t find what it meant under the pattern descriptions. I thought it would be here, but I didn’t really see it referenced. Thanks!!
Hi- V Figure is drafted off the “mens standard measurements” with broad shoulders, 5’10” height, etc. The Hourglass is drafted from the “women’s curvy standard measurements” with narrow shoulders, 5’5″ height, bust/waist/hip ratios are for a curvy/hourglass figure. I hope that helps!

Just to let you know that the print guide for the women’s pattern lists pages 66-70 to be printed for the lining, but there are only 59 pages in the file. The pages actually needed are 55-59, which are not listed in the print guide.
Thank you, I will check and update that asap!
Hi- thank you again for letting me know- that’s been updated! If you’d like the updated file, just redownload from your account.

How do I get the updated file? I am going to attempt to make this and want/need guidance. Do you have a video with steps to making it? I would feel a bit more comfortable if I can get your expertise with a video.
Hi- If you have purchased the older Lumberjack youth pattern you will have a new download link in your downloads here on the site. It will have a code to put towards the new pattern. There is one video in the tutorial for the sleeve placket. Otherwise it is step by step pictures.
Is there a full video tutorial of someone making the lined version with hood and pockets?
I’m not positive what option Alex sewed, but we do have a full Sew A Long here on the blog and on You-Tube.
