Halftime Hoodie

(2 customer reviews)


The men’s Halftime Hoodie was inspired by men who kept asking, “When are you going to sew something for me?”  Some other ideas for the name were, “Here’s Your Dang Hoodie” and “Yes, I Intend to Steal Your Hoodie When You’re Not Looking.”

The Halftime Hoodie is the perfect answer to “What should I sew for the men in my life?”  It’s also the perfect answer to “What should I sew for my man that I might also like to wear?” Or, maybe you are a man who enjoys sewing and this is the perfect thing to add to your own wardrobe!  Who am I kidding?  I supposedly made one for my husband, but it is now folded neatly in MY closet. 🙂

Options for the Halftime Hoodie include:

  • Crewneck
  • Hood
  • 2 size options for Kangaroo Pocket (regular and oversized)
  • Short and Tall cuffs (that can include thumbholes)
  • sizes XXS-5XL

The Halftime Hoodie is a loose-fitting sweatshirt pattern intended for medium to heavy weight knit fabrics such as sweatshirt fleece.  Fleece and thicker French Terry will work as well.  If using French Terry, please consider the weight and drape of the fabric.  If it is thin, the garment will be much looser than intended by the pattern.  Fabric with at least 10% stretch is recommended.  This is a loose-fit pattern based mainly on chest size.  The pattern is available in men’s sizes XXS-5XL.  The last picture shows the size chart and fabric requirements. Don’t forget to check out the Halftime Hoodie Bundle.

As with all 5 out of 4 Patterns, your download will include pattern pieces professionally drawn so they are easy to piece together at home.  Your downloads will include pattern pieces formatted for 8.5×11, A4, and A0.  PLEASE make sure you only use the A4 formatted pieces if you are living outside of the US and printing on A4 paper!!  The tutorial includes professionally drawn illustrations as well as links to the 5 out of 4 YouTube channel, where we have uploaded videos for both grommet installation and thumbhole cuffs.

We hope that you love the Halftime Hoodie.  Please join the 5 out of 4 Patterns Group on Facebook and share your creations!  We love seeing them.

    I checked with Jessica on the 5 out of 4 FB Group with my Husband’s measurements (yay for beer bellies – ugh!), and made him a pullover hoodie with front pocket and just used binding for a no-sleeve version (as per his request).

    it was a simple sew, and perfect for the stretch fleece fabric I bought for him. I used old t-shirt fabric for the inner hoodie lining, and had no issues with the two different fabrics – they lie flat, and I topstitched around the outside of the hood for a flat lay.

    I added 3″ to the length of the hoodie (tall Husband), and did not adjust the pattern grading – for a perfect fit!

    Yay! We are both happy, and I’ll be whipping him up another one for the fall.
