If you're wearing your sweatshirt during athletic activity, having holes for your thumbs in the sleeves ensures that the sleeve will keep your arm and wrist covered, and that you won't have to deal with the cuff getting in your way. There's plenty of athletic clothing on the market that has pre-made thumb holes, but you don't need to go out and buy any. Your sweatshirt will do fine. Making a thumb hole in the sweatshirt is a simple task that you'll be glad you took the time to do, especially when it comes time for those winter morning jogs. Put your sweatshirt on.

Did you buy a sweater and wish it had thumbholes? Read more for a tutorial on how to add thumbholes to a store-bought sweater — no sewing machine required! I have a few ready-to-wear sweaters and long sleeve shirts in my closet that I bought a couple years ago. I love them, but one of my main complaints is that I wish they all had thumbholes! For me, they are a necessary feature for all my sweaters.

Adding a thumb hole to a sleeve is a cool trick. With your thumbs in the thumb holes, the sweater keeps your hands warm. Without your thumbs in the thumb holes, it looks pretty much like a normal sweater, slightly more rock and roll. When making sleeves, add 2 inches to the length of each sleeve after shaping or whatever is needed for the sleeves to reach your knuckles. When sewing sleeve seams, leave a 2-inch gap unstitched near the bottom immediately above the hemming on a hemmed version, or slightly above the seed stitch edge as shown in the sample swatch above.
