Lauren's Geodesic Dream

Fall is my favorite time of year! It's the time when my handmade wardrobe gets a real chance to shine. I decided to take a break from (several) knitting projects and whip up the Geodesic sweater with a super fun, and reversible, loop terry we just got in the shop.

Blueprints for Sewing Geodeic Sweater

I'm a big fan of a cropped sweater and high-waisted jeans combo so I knew I would get a lot of use out of this garment. There are so many design options for the Geodesic when it comes to fabric choices. One thing I loved about using this loop terry was being able to flip flop the triangle pieces on the front side of the sweater since this fabric is double sided. I think it makes the triangles pop instead of being more subtle. The pieces are small enough that it would be a great stash buster if you wanted to mix and match.

This sweater may look complicated but I think it would be a great pattern for someone wanting to try out a knit for the first time. I made this in about 3 hours! The most important thing is to try and match up the points of the triangles as close as you can. Mine isn't perfect but luckily jersey is very forgiving.

I can definitely see myself making another one of these in the future. Next time I think I'll try Version 2 (which has pockets) in a solid!

We are currently sold out of the Charcoal Heather colorway of this thick and lucious Loop Terry Matching Rib, but the Navy Heather looks shockingly similar. If you are interested in a more subtle look, the Light Grey Heather is definitely the way to go!

    Sara it’s a pretty stable jersey and sewing it on a home machine shouldn’t be an issue.

    Hi! I’m wondering how easily this material sews on more basic machines? I’ve sewn quilted jersey without a problem, but wonder if this material has more stretch. Thanks!
