Bonfire Hoodie


Create Wishlist

The Bonfire hoodie is designed with a cozy slightly relaxed fit.  Keeping with the "cozy" theme, this sweater features a large fully lined hood with optional drawstring.  For those looking for a quicker sew the hood can also be exchanged for the simple neckband.  The sleeve cuffs can be made as either solid cuffs or with a thumb hole.  The angles of the front panel are not only a typical Sofiona design feature, but also the perfect location for an optional hidden front pocket.  A hi-lo hemline gives this sweater the perfect coverage for pairing with anything from jeans to your favourite Sofiona Designs Rocky Shore tights!

Recommended Fabrics: 

MAIN BODY:  Mid. to heavy weight structured knits with at least 25% stretch such as some French terry, fleece, fleece-backed knit, etc.
HOOD/BODICE LINING:  Light to mid-weight knits are recommended in these locations to help reduce bulk; however, it’s best to still choose fabrics with good structure and recovery such as some French terry, cotton Lycra, etc.  They should also have a stretch similar to the main fabric.
POCKET: Mid-weight structured knits are recommended.  Lighter or less structured knits are a possible choice, but there may be a tendency for the pocket to “droop” in those cases.



NOTE:  These notions are for the drawstring version of the hoodie.  If omitting the drawstrings/eyelets none of these are required.

- 4 eyelets with 1/4” inside diameter (optional for hood/hem drawstring openings.  Buttonholes are also a suitable alternative.)
- Drawstring (for hood and hem)
- Small piece of iron-on interfacing (enough for 4 pieces 1.5”x1.5”) (for stabilizing eyelet/buttonhole location)

Bonfire hoodie
Written by Martina on 2021 Apr 3rd

My daughter‘s favourite hoodie ever. The construction takes some time and that pocket... but it‘s so worth it!

If you are looking for a quick and easy project, this is not it. If you are looking for a super rewarding sew that is totally worth the amount of time you spend on it. This is it. I made a few bonfires and love them! Original style lines, a perfect fit. A very wide size-range. And very clear instructions. This is one of my favorite Sofiona patterns.
