This is another great pattern from Cashmerette. I've now made the cowl neck, high/low version 3 times! I've used a stable knit as well as a more drapey one and both look great! The top works for casual lounging as well as (smart/casual) work, depending on fabric. The fit was perfect and instructions were clear, as usual!
I made my first tobin as an xmas gift for my MIL. I took her measurements and just trusted the pattern.... what magic it is! It fit brilliantly and was truly a joy to sew. The split neck looks so elegant as was easy to execute. I am looking forward to making many, many more for myself. Another winning pattern. Thanks cashmerette!
Have made five and plan more. Excellent and very wearable!
I have made 3 cowl neck Tobin Sweaters. The fit is flattering. It is very comfortable to wear and as always, the instructions are super easy to follow.
The Tobin Sweater pattern is absolutely amazing. I have made 4 already, with 3 different collars. The fit is just great. I had to do only minor adjustments in the length. But that is alright, and very easy. Everything else fits perfectly.
