I Am Patterns, Rainbow Sweater & Hoodie



I Am Rainbow is a versatile sweatshirt where you can mix and match lengths, add a hood or not, choose from three different pocket styles and choose to make as a zip up jumper/cardi or a classic over the head sweater.   With all these choices, you'll be able to create multiple casual wardrobe staples. .

Detailed instructions in English and French.  The different pieces overlap with each other so you will need to trace the pattern on tracing paper.

This is a multi sized pattern including sizes:  EUR 36 – 46.  See image for sizing 

Recommended Fabric : interlock knit, french terry, rib knit

Fabric requirements:  See table below for indication of sample styles.  
It is impossible to list the yardage for all versions in all sizes. Three versions have been given - To calculate the fabric required for the other versions, refer to step 4 (Cutting the fabric) of the instructions.


This pattern gives you the possibility of making 70 different versions (and 26 more versions without pockets).
The different features of this garment are:

  • 2 styles: zipped hoodie or slip-on sweatshirt
  • 2 cuff and bottom finishes: with ribbing or hemmed
  • 4 lengths: classic, above-knee, below-knee and midi
  • 3 types of pockets: kangaroo, welt or inseam
  • 3 neckline finishes: classic hood, overlapping hood or neckband

You can then choose the sweatshirt you want to make by combining the different features together.
