Aut umn st roll The first cold snap will soon be with us, so jumpers and ponchos are just the things to wrap ourselves in for long walks through freshly fallen leaves.
6310 Poncho This stylish poncho is quickly sewn – ideal for when you suddenly realise that temperatures have dropped. An essential touch for this season, the fringe was cut from fulling fabric with a rotary knife and ruler.
6312 Jumper This jumper is a real gem and a challenge to your embroidery machine, since the Norwegian-look knitted stitches are “fakes”. When creating the embroidery file, we made sure that the elasticity of the knit fabric was retained. When embroidering, use water-soluble stabiliser only.
6313 Cap This snuggly-warm woolly hat is quick to sew; only the embroidery on it takes a bit more time. The variegated cotton thread of the Norwegian pattern harmonises perfectly with the grey knit fabric. The fur pompom is simply unbuttoned and removed before washing.

S weat fabric – no t just for spor tswear Sweatshirt fabrics are comfort personified. Lately, we’ve seen them worn on the street for non-sporty pursuits – with high heels, even !
6320 Sweat jacket The star-shaped silver ornaments are not embroidered, but were sewn on with the tapering function ( BERNINA 780, 790 and BERNINA 830, 880 ). The flatlock seam was sewn on with an overlocker and metallic thread, in order to highlight the jacket’s cuffs and hems.
6321 Joggers These joggers also team well with the blazer. The cord is just for decoration – the garment is held up at the waist with a wide piece of elastic and dispenses with a zip.
