Näh Connection Shop Blog Tour, the Longihood

Are you ready for a blog tour packed with new designs? Well not actually new designs, but German patterns translated into English! Annika from Näh Connection is opening this new concept in her shop and I'm lucky to call myself a Näh Connection Ambassador!

Today I'm showcasing the Longihood, a pattern by Erbsenprinzessin. The Longihood is a loose fitted hoodie (or hooded dress) with optional diagonal colourblocking. I kept mine basic in the softest grey sweater jersey you can imagine. The lining of the hood contains a piece of the cool flakes panel by Zonen09.

So, what can I tell you about this pattern? It's a nice pattern, with easy to follow instructions (don't forget to add your own seam allowance!) and fun to whip up if you have an hour to spare.

I think I just found a new staple sew for this fall season. Because for my kids, nothing beats playing outside in a comfy and warm sweater.

Just go and have a look at Annika's shop and discover al the translated women, kids and bag patterns. Or check out the other Näh Connection Ambassador posts for more inspiration!

* I received this pattern for a review and blogpost. However all opinions are as always honest and my own. 


  1. this looks like such a nice basic pattern!
    i love the way o played with the fabrics. it gives a special look to the sweat shirt and it is a perfect way to use those small pieces we always have left on our stash...

    1. Ja he? Mijn jongens vinden dat zo fijn zitten (en ik trouwens ook...)

  3. Just look at the striped cuffs and waist band. Those little touches make all the difference.

  4. Ah, love it. Your boys are so cool!
