Heading into colder weather is always so exciting, pulling out sweaters and coats, boots and favourite woollens. The Jarrah Sweater is the perfect layering piece for the in-between seasons and is so incredibly versatile. We’re in love! We’ve pulled together some inspiration & ideas to show you just how many options there are for this gorgeous sweater.
- Go up a size to add more slouch to your sweater. Just make sure the neckband fits well around your neck and adjust if necessary.
- Choose a lighter-weight fabric like french terry in your usual size to get a roomier feel.
- Include a high split hem to show your jeans/pants underneath, it’ll give some shape to your look!
Jarrah is such a great basic pattern, there are so many ways to make it your own and add little details to customise it.
- Create an extremely high split hem and wear a contrasting colour underneath or leave it bare.
- Thicker bands at the wrist and base of the sweater or combining a split hem with a thick ribbed band at the base give the sweater a different look.
- Add a pocket on the front for a fun detail.
- Extend the length to make a sweater dress!
Adding a funnel neck is such a fun way to make your sweater even cosier. Play around with the length & width of the funnel to see if you can create different looks.
- Shorten your Jarrah to create a cute cropped version and wear it with high-waisted jeans, skirts or even shorts and sneakers!
- Add in a flared or balloon sleeve to balance out the short sweater.
- Create a cropped sweater with a large band at the base to give the illusion of a crop without baring the midriff.
The beautiful thing about the Jarrah pattern is it can be just as easily dressed up for a more glamorous fancy look. Pair with a lightweight flowy skirt and heels for a feminine look or a structured pencil skirt for a work day.
