When the trust went bust in , Edwards declared bankruptcy and sued the trustees for mismanagement. The legal face-off inspired Edwards to become a lawyer. Despite carrying a torch in the pre-Olympic relay at the Vancouver Games, Edwards is something of a pariah in the ski jumping world. In , the International Olympic Committee imposed a minimum qualifying distance for all World Cup and Olympic ski jumpers.
Some sent him hate mail. Go off and die. I was the best—albeit the only—jumper my country had. I had a right to be there. Bouncing on his sofa, he makes a rare foray into introspection.

For six weeks, luna moth caterpillars gorge themselves on the leaves of the marula tree. Then, when they're ready, they instinctively weave giant cocoons around themselves in preparation for their stunning metamorphosis. Comment on this Story. First Name. Last Name. Address 1. We decided to work with a fleece-back, medium-weight Merino wool, which is slightly nicer than your average hoodie made out of polyester or cotton.
With this pattern, you have the option to sew the front band in a contrasting fabric or with a decorative ribbon. We sewed it all in the same fabric, but feel free to go wild! Download and print the pieces, then cut out the size that fits you best before cutting out all the pieces in your fabric of choice. This pattern has patch pockets in front, but they're entire optional. So if you don't want them, skip ahead to step 4. Sew along the top and bottom edges.
Turn the pockets right-side out and press the fold at the opening. Also press the top edge and front edge that fold along with the seam allowance. Place the pockets on the front hoodie pieces, lining up the edges. Along the top and side edges, edge stitch in place. Along the center front and bottom edges, secure with a baste stitch. Place the front pieces on top of the back piece, right sides together. Stitch along the shoulder seams. Press seam allowance after sewing. Open up the hoodie with the right side up.
Place one sleeve on top of the hoodie with the notches lined up. Stitch in place, then press the seam allowance toward the sleeve. Repeat on the other side so both sleeves are sewn. Lay the hoodie in place, arranging it as it will look when finished, but with the wrong side out. Sew both side seams, then press the seam.

For the cuffs, fold the pieces in half, right sides together. Sew along the opposite edge. Fold the cuff in half, wrong sides together, and press the fold. To attach the cuffs to the sleeves, divide the cuffs and the sleeve openings into four equal parts. Start at the side seams in each piece, and find the spot opposite the seam. Then divide those two sections in half for four sections. Repeat this on the sleeve opening.

Pin the cuffs to the sleeves with the raw edges flush. Match each of the four sections, stretching the cuff where needed to fit. Pin the hem band to the bottom of the hoodie, matching up notches. Pin and sew in place, then press the seam allowance down toward the hem. Pin the front bands to the front of the hoodie, matching up the markings from the pattern.
Pin the right side of the band to the right side of the hoodie. Note that the band will extend below the front of the hoodie. Sew the bands in place along the inside edge. Fold the bands to the front and press. Edge stitch along the previously sewn seam. Baste the band along the front edge to hold it in place. Fold the bottom edge up to the inside of the hoodie and edge stitch in place. If your zipper is too long for the hoodie, remove teeth from the top edge by pulling them off with pliers.
Be careful not to damage the zipper tape, which will be visible.
High Jump Approach Technique
Make sure your pull is below the area where you're working, and do not slide it up until you're done. Otherwise you will pull it right off the zipper! Pin the zipper in place on either side of the front opening. Place the zipper tape flush with the opening and the bottom stopper flush with the bottom band. Using your zipper foot, sew along the zipper, securing it to the opening. Repeat on the opposite side. Flip the zipper tape and seam allowance to the inside of the hoodie and press.
Be careful — the teeth will be hot! Stitch along the zipper again, sewing the tape and seam allowance to the inside of the hoodie. The teeth should now be facing the center of the opening. Place the right sides of the hood together and sew along the curved edge. Press the seam allowance.
