Pattern Hacking the BudaStyle Oversized Sweater – Step-by-step tutorial

Ok, so I’m not very good at following instructions.  In fact, I really don’t like being told what to do. Ever. lol  So naturally, pattern hacking is my game.  I love it!  I love taking simple, easy to use patterns and making them into something a little different.  Sometimes they get hacked over and over again until they barely resemble the original pattern.  For me, that’s the fun of sewing!

Today I’m showing you how to use a basic and versatile BuraStyle pattern and hack it a few different ways.  I’ve used wool/acrylic cable knit fabric from Textile Traders, but really, you could use anything with a soft drape.  Rayon would be really lovely as a lighter version.

So here is the original version of this pattern.

Here are some of the variations I’ve made so far.

I anticipate there will be more versions of this pattern popping up very soon.  I’m sure that it will look vastly different from the original in no time!  Stay tuned…

Happy hacking!
