I am seeing sweaters like this one (actually that is a jacket) in boutiques done in lycra knits but I am not willing to pay boutique prices and have a rather large stash of lovely french terry I would like to use up. Is it a jacket? Is it a sweater? Or search under cardigan?

My criteria are: shawl collar that can be done up to the neck if necessary, asymmetrical/interesting look, preferably with pockets.

I seem to be a terrible pattern searcher so forgive my denseness if there are hundreds of these in all pattern company collections!

What about Jalie 2911? The shawl collar is smaller but it sews up beautifully...

Look under Jackets and Sportswear and Sweater patterns.
When I think of shawl collar, it's the kind that folds around the collar all the way down to the hem, somewhat like a bathrobe.
The pix has a jacket collar, but then that terry might not be stiff enough for such a pattern.
I have Butterick 5224, which has several looks for soft knits, plus interesting sleeves and bottom.
Could be used as sweater jacket, beach coverup, robe, swing overlay.
You might look at Vintage patterns on Etsy too.

You could just use a jacket pattern and ditch the structure. Maybe make it in a smaller size than your usual.

This has possibilities I think. Wonder if it is possible to do without lining in a softer fabric like french terry.

I picked up the McCall's pattern today. DD said "yes!" very loudly when I showed it to her, so if I don't like it, she will probably take it.

ETA: McCall 5759
