Nina Lee - Southbank Sweater
About the Southbank
The Southbank Sweater and Sweater Dress is a cosy yet stylish knit pattern designed to become a winter wardrobe workhorse. With a slightly oversized fit, funnel neck and drop-shoulders, Southbank is on-trend, comfortable and flattering. Oh, and it’s unbelievably quick and easy to sew.
The pattern comes with detailed illustrated instructions and a page of tips for sewing with knits for beginners.
All three Southbank options work well in medium-weight knits with up to 20% stretch, such as ponte roma, boiled wool, sweatshirt fabric. Version 2 also works beautifully in lighter-weight jerseys which give a softer, drapier look.
- 0.5m of clear elastic or stay tape, 1 cm wide
- ballpoint or jersey needle
- For Versions 2 and 3: 2.5mm twin needle (optional)
The size range for this pattern is UK sizes 6–20.
The Nina Lee patterns available from stockists are drafted for UK sizes 6–20. Nina is in the process of updating designs to have a second size range from UK 16–28.
