New Pattern Release: The Lumia Zip Up Hoodie

New Pattern Release: The Lumia Zip Up Hoodie

Posted by Melanie Burns on

Hey all you Greenstylers! It's Melanie again with another exciting pattern release: The Lumia Zip Up Hoodie!  You asked, we delivered! We heard your requests for a cross between the Waimea/Pacific Pullover with a full zip, so without further ado, here is the Lumia Zip Up Hoodie!

The Lumia zip up hoodie has a cool front curve and back yoke that are perfect for color blocking or adding contrasting piping. The huge pockets and 3 piece scuba style hood or collar make this hoodie stand out! With clear, easy to follow instructions and clean, professional finishing techniques, this pattern will have you making more and more Lumia hoodies to fill your closet! 

This pattern is drafted for stable knit fabrics with 25% 4 way stretch, such as Scuba, French Terry, Ponte, or other stretch outerwear fabric. Soft-shell can be used, but it is recommended you size up for fabrics with little to no stretch. This pattern also takes 2 1/2-3 yards of fabric depending on size made, and uses a 26" zipper for sizes B-E, 27" zipper for sizes F-I, and 28" zipper for sizes J-M. You'll also need grommets and drawstring if choosing to do the drawstring option, and some fusible interfacing for stability if using higher stretch fabrics. 

This pattern follows our current size chart of B-M. Choose your size based on your measurements, and if your measurements fall in different sizes, grade between sizes for best fit. If you have any questions, head on over to our Facebook group to find a very supportive group of people willing to help you out!

As always, our testers had a blast testing this pattern for y'all, so here they are in all their awesome glory! Check them out below and show them a little love!
