Now the adults can match their littles! The Adult Half Zip Sweater goes from sizes XXS - 5XL. The mock turtleneck collar and front kangaroo pocket give it an elevated twist while being ever so comfortable. The separate pieces on the top and bottom make this pattern perfect for color blocking and scrap busting! The zipper instructions are very clear and easy to follow, so if you've never sewn a zipper before, this is an awesome pattern to start with!
Use the size chart to determine which size to cut and sew. If you’re in between sizes, you can go up or down in side depending on what fit you’re going for. Some of our testers opted to size down for a more fitted look.
This sweater was drafted for a height of 5’ 10”. You can adjust the length as desired! Measuring tips, finished measurements and length adjustment included in the instructions. Please make sure to read through the instructions thoroughly before getting started!

Knit - We recommend using a thicker knit such as large loop french terry, fleece, or other sweater knits. If you use a knit that is pretty stretchy, you’ll want hemming tape or interfacing to help stabilize when you add the zipper.
1/2” (1.3cm) Double folded Bias tape (optional but recommended)
Hem Tape, Interfacing or Wonder Tape (optional but highly recommended)

What kind of machine do I need to sew your patterns? A sewing machine is a must. If you are really wanting to get into making clothing though, I HIGHLY suggest getting a serger. Sergers make everything easier and cleaner. They also sew with knits a lot better than regular sewing machines!
I also own a coverstitch machine which has been a game changer. It's definitely not necessary but it is an amazing machine to have if you want your clothes to have a professional finish.
Can I sell clothes I make from your patterns? Yes, as long as you are the one sewing the clothes (you may not outsource to a manufacturer or otherwise mass produce the clothes). We love seeing our designs come to life!

Can I share patterns I buy? No. We spend a lot of time and effort on each of our patterns and instructions. If people are interested in using Lowland Kids patterns you've acquired, please direct them to our website.
How Do I know what size to print? Once you download the pattern, open up the instructions and there is a sizing chart that will help you decide which size to print! If your kiddo is in between sizes you can always take the width of one size and length of another.
Can a beginner sew your patterns? Yes! We have patterns for beginners and experienced sewists alike. In the description of each pattern there will be a level of difficulty and it's up to you to decide!
Do you support Layers? YES! Each pattern has layers incorporated so you can just deselect any sizes you don't want to print!
