Named Evolution Theory Collection - Talvikki Sweater


In case you haven't heard, Named Clothing have just released their new collection. It is called Evolution theory and I think it might be their best yet. I am planning to work my way through most of the pieces! I was fortunate to have tested two of the new patterns and this one has already been worn a lot!


This is the Talvikki sweater. A stylish and simple design with interesting dart details at the front and back neckline, side splits and a high/low hemline. Just the right number and combination of features for a perfect design.


I made mine from lovely French terry fabric in grey marle from Potter Textiles. I am wearing it above with StyleArc Lola pants in the same fabric, but it works equally well with jeans (Named Jamie Jeans, below) and other combinations.


This is an easy garment to sew and the instructions are clear with helpful diagrams. I made a size 40 according to the size chart and the fit is loose and comfy.


You can see the darts that shape the neckline in the pictures above and below. Top Tip: use very stretchy knit interfacing on the neckline facing or it won't go over your head!


I love the gently curved, longer back.




 Actually, I love everything. This is so comfortable and cosy, I never want to take it off!


This one's a winner!

  1. Cosy! It looks great with the matching pants and Sketcher shoes - radiates that "stars with no make-up" look of effortless glam.

  2. Those neckline darts are something quite different. Great looking sweater and you have managed to look effortlessly glamorous as Gail said.

  3. I've just sewn myself a sweater in the same fabric - we can be twins! 😂
