Sewing the sweater “Luna”
The short sweater features a pocket and the hem is gathered with a cord. The sweater is sewn on an overlocker, using a 4-thread overlock or a 3-thread super-stretch stitch. We used the “SabaFLEX” elastic thread from Mettler for additional flexibility of the seams.
After closing the shoulder seams and sewing the cuff along the neckline, the sleeve and side seams are closed in one go. This is a lot easier then inserting an already closed sleeve into a round armhole with the overlock, especially if your overlocker does not feature a free-arm.
The sweater “Luna” is best hemmed with the coverstitch (overlocker or cover/chainstitch machine). Alternatively you can use a twin needle with your sewing machine. Tip: Use elastic sewing thread for hemming and topstitching the cuffs, so that the thread does not break when tightened. A narrow zigzag stitch would also be an option.
