Interesting patterns for sweatshirt fleece?
Beyond basic sweatshirts...?

Now that I'm getting brave and working through my knit stash, I'd like to tackle some nice navy blue sweatshirt fleece I bought for (go figure!) a sweatshirt. I don't actually wear sweatshirts, though, and I'm wondering if anyone has a more interesting suggestion--cardis, tunics, jackets, poncho-capey things... anything!

Ideas? I think I have four yards.
Thanks!!

Two things I'm hoping to copy....let's see if the links work. Edit: YES!

Super Cute!!! I think I'll have to look into that pattern for myself.

What a great sweatshirt dress!
And Karla I love your knockoffs to be, esp. the top one. What a fashionable cute jacket yet the warmth and easy casual feel of fleece. Love it! A few years ago I saw some more tailored jackets (for lack of better description), unlined, simple, collarless but maybe a ruffle or flounce around neck, or moto type out of sweatshirt fleece. Loved the idea, a more put together day look but the comfort of wearing a sweatshirt. Sweatshirt fleece is not just for sweating in!

Karla, those jackets look so cozy! Do you have patterns in mind yet?

I definitely don't think I'm brave enough to wear a fleece dress.

You're giving me ideas, though. Now I'm wondering if I could find something to knock off this knit jacket from Soft Surroundings:
(much better photos at the link)



I feel like I missed the boat for knit jacket *patterns,* but I'm still seeing tons of them in RTW. Land's End has a fleece peacoat!

I love the top one. I've got some sweatshirt fleece hanging out in the stash as well, and it's aspiring to be a bit more than a plain 'ol sweatshirt or hoodie.

This fits the bill perfectly. Thanks, Karla!

Love that jacket! No idea on a pattern for it though.

However I did see something over at Burda recently -
A user/poster made up their 3/4 sleeve top in wool, and said it's perfect for thick wintry fabrics. I bet it would sew up great in sweatshirt fleece. It's sort of a more fashionable sweatshirt anyway!

I like the retro collar -

I had my sweatshirt fleece earmarked for a hoodie, but thanks to Karla's suggestions (especially that top one), I'm going to rethink! Have you found a pattern for that? Someone posted a review of an OOP pattern just recently that looks like that.

ETA: this is the review I was thinking of.
