Free hoodie sewing pattern!

green display

I know you’ve been patiently waiting for this sweatshirt so I’m super excited to get it to you!

The pattern is a raglan sleeve sweatshirt with a scuba style hood, optional front pocket and arm seam detailing.

It’s been my favorite pattern for a long time because it’s practical, unique, warm, super comfortable, versatile and beyond adorable!

I love pairing it with the regular leggings, slim harems and cuff leggings patterns.

Here’s a bit of the tutorial for you to check out.  But more importantly, go get the pattern and make like 15 of them, it’s that awesome!

It’s also the pattern I used for the peacock costume, in case you were wondering.

With this pattern, you will notice some things have changed in the layout. I also added some information to the file. All my patterns will eventually look the same as this sweatshirt- just something I’m adding to improve the patterns.

Like all the patterns, you will print and cut out the pieces in your size.


Then, the pieces will have to be cut out of your fabrics:  These are just a couple examples, you will need to cut out the front, back and cuffs as well.


The first thing to do is sew the pocket on the front of the sweatshirt (this is totally optional by the way)


One of the techniques I used is the arm seam detailing.  This is really easy to do.  You will just cut 4 strips of fabric (mine measure 7/8″ x 10″, I have a piece for them in the pattern) , fold them in half and sew them to the arm seams before sewing the sleeves on- See in the following photos:

23 35 37 39 40

After sewing the sleeve on and opening, you will see the detail on all 4 seams.


Then, you will sew the sides together, sew the cuffs and waistband on and add the hood!

57 62 67

The tutorial will have many more detailed steps of course, this is just a quick look.

    It’s btfll tnx -have one question about this fabric what is it and where can I buy it ???

    • Melissa Hendrickson

      I found the fabric locally as a remnant 🙂

      • meg

        Ehh I could not found any stretch so I did it with thick cotton jogging fabric and everything was fine till did the hood I don’t know why is to small ?

        • Melissa Hendrickson

          Yes the hood needs to have a stretchy fabric. The sizing is made for stretch so it will have a close fit.

  • Cvita

    I just cant find a size of it…What size is it? 🙂

  • Mareike

    great. I like it – and it will like also my daugther.

    Hello again 🙂 … I didn’t get the free pattern for this hoodie yet. Is it maybe something wrong? My email is Thank you

  • Sharon

    It was a great free pattern, but I think my son has too big of a head… The hood was really stretched! – looked like he needed a size up.. In any case, he still received compliments. Thank you!!

  • Nichole Kasey

    I signed up for the newsletter back in January. I am just now getting around to make the free hoodie but I went back through all the emails and I never received the email with the free pattern. How can I get this.

  • Erika Mitchell

    if you are already on the email list do you automatically get the pattern. if not my email is thanks!!! 🙂

  • Melissa Heller

    Thank you for this wonderful pattern. I was wondering if the front side seams are intended to be longer than the back side seams? When I was putting it together it failed to match up and rechecked the pattern pieces to make sure they were cut correctly.

    • Melissa Hendrickson

      Hi! No, it shouldn’t be longer. If it’s longer there is something going wrong with the printing or if your fabric is being fed unevenly when you sew.

  • Charlotte

    Hi Melissa, I signed up and no hoodie pattern came through with the confirmation emails? Can you help
