Otium Sweater by Sofilantjes: Blog Tour + Giveaway: The Berry Bunch

Welcome to my stop on Sofilantjes' Otium Sweater Blog Tour! Aren't the sweaters/tops that everyone has sewn up super cute?

The Otium Sweater by Sofilantjes is so super cute! I saw the testing call and immediately wanted to sign up for the woman's top but was too busy and didn't have room in the budget for more yardage. Totally bummed. But then the sign up went out for a tour and I jumped at the chance! I mean, the sweater is awesome! Adorable for women and girls!

She is totally into bows right now and I had to go with the bow option. As long as it has a bow, it's perfect!

I was originally going to sew up a long sleeve one, but it has since been rather warm (like 75° warm). So i decided to go with the 3/4 sleeve for those still cool nights and possible rainy days. Hey, we have had a few in these last few days! I did not do the extra pocket on the front. Though, I could picture her carrying around one of her numerous "babies" (any stuffed animal at the time she is showing interest in it) or one of her brothers cars!

The pattern is super easy to sew. The bow, to be honest, scared me. The directions are simple and easy to follow. I love patterns that come with multiple options! This is one of them. 3 different sleeve lengths, the regular or low back neckline, the bow, and an option pocket for the front!

You can get the patterns bundled for women and for girls, or separately for girls, women. the girls pattern ranges up to 14y! Check out the other cute patterns in Sofilantjes' Etsy Shop!
