Vuokatti Shirt Pattern
Shelby Kaava #301 Vuokatti Pullover Instructions
The Vuokatti Pullover is a basic pattern useful for all your layer 1 and layer 2 shirt needs. The raglan sleeve gives a sleek but functional look, and many combinations of collars can give variation. The pattern can also be used to make short sleeved T-shirts.
Any light to medium weight fabric with 50% stretch. For example a wool knit (ONWA) or Polartec Powerdry (PTPD) for underwear, Polartec Powerstretch (PTPS) or Polartec 100 (PT100M) for a mid-layer.
When using material with less stretch one size larger is recommended. If a material has more stretch then choose one size smaller.
There are two options in the pattern. Option 1: A zipper can be inserted in the front of the pullover. Option 2: A stretch binding can be used for finishing the hems.
No seam or hem allowances in the pattern! If sewing using a flat-stitch technique seam allowances are not needed. If using the stretch binding then hem allowances are also not needed. Otherwise if making a normal seam add a 5 mm seam allowance and 2 cm hem allowance when cutting.
