Easy to Make and Sew
This cut and sew sweater uses sweater fabric that is sewn on a serger. Sweater fabric can be found by the yard online or in fabric stores. This is Simplicity Pattern #S8738.

I made no pattern adjustments, other than to the neckline. I made the turtle neck shorter to fit my short neck.
