BurdaStyle Pullover

It’s been a long time since I made anything from my collection of Burda Style magazines – but I really like getting them. So, I decided that I should do what many people have done and make at least one thing from the magazine every month. We’ll see how that goes, but anyway…this was the first thing I’ve made from them in quite some time. I always have to start with something easy and this pullover top fit the bill. It’s from 11/2012 #128. 


I used a sweater knit that I had. The only adjustments that I made to the pattern was to raise the neckline by about 2 1/2″ and reduced the width of the cuff bands. Everything else was the same. 


The back is longer than the front, so this is a great top to wear with leggings and the sweater knit just makes it really cozy.



So now that I’ve had success with this, I’ll have to challenge myself and try something with more than just a few pieces!

  1. Looks great. I'll bet it is cozy too. I think it was a good idea to raise the neckline. Deep V-necks just aren't as cozy or modest.

  2. Really cute. I like tops that are a little lower in the back as well. Such a versatile piece you've created as evidenced in your styling choice. Nice work!

  3. I'm just looking to make this top now and saw your review on patternreview. Your version is so pretty. I wasn't excited to make the top, but now I am.
