Use this pattern to sew a beautiful lightweight hoodie that has a lined interior, a front zipper along its entire length, and practical front pockets that can keep your wallet or phone perfectly. The sleeves have elastic cuffs at the end that fit your wrists snuggly for windy days, while the hoodie has a drawstring you can tighten and tie if you need to cover your head and protect it from the elements.
How to make a hoodie pattern from your favorite hoodie
For those of you who prefer pullover hoodies, here comes one that has a matching bottom hem band and cuffs, a large front pocket with openings on each side, and the crucial hood. Use fabrics in different colors for the body, pocket, and cuffs to give the hoodie the cheerful appeal it deserves.
Women’s cowl neck sweatshirt
Get ready for a particularly comfortable hoodie that has sleeves that are slightly longer than they should be so you can tuck your hands in them and a cowl neck that can act as a soft scarf when necessary. The cuffs and the bottom hem band are elastic so they stay close to your body. The cowl is loose but fitted with a drawstring that allows you to tighten it if you’re chilly.
Women’s cropped hoodie
Sometimes when you’re training you need an extremely light hoodie like this one that covers just the top half of your torso and your arms. The sleeves have elastic cuffs that keep them from rolling up as you move your arms when you’re running or doing some bag punching. A drawstring under the hood comes in handy if rain catches you during your jog because you can tighten it and keep your head covered and protected.

Think of this pattern as a closed vest layered over a hoodie that’s a bit boxy, with a pocket, an elastic waistband, and cuffs, as well as a drawstring-fitted hoodie. There are two pocket options for you to choose from, the famous hoodie belly pocket, or a smaller chest pocket like the ones you can see on jackets. No one’s stopping you from making both at once though, that’s perfectly fine if you prefer or need extra storage room.
