Southbank Sweater Pattern by Nina Lee

This 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 is unbelievably quick and easy to sew!

  • Version 1 is a sweater dress with a sweatshirt-inspired hem band and side-seam pockets, easy to dress up or down
  • Version 2 is a hip-length top suitable for wearing over trousers or pencil skirts when made in a ponte or similar, or ideal for tucking into high-waisted garments if made in a lighter-weight fabric
  • Version 3 is a cropped sweater designed to finish at the natural waist

All three variations feature slouchy, slightly over-long sleeves with cuffs.

The pattern comes with detailed illustrated instructions and a page of tips for sewing with knits for beginners.


This is a multisized pattern in UK sizes 6-20

Fabric Suggestions:

All three 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)
