About: The flattering drape of this comfy, yet classy, ladies knit top with loose, fluttery sleeves will make you feel light and airy. It is designed to fit snug against your chest, then slowly flaring out to fit loosely in the tummy and hips. It’s a good thing you can make 6 different styles with this one pattern, because you’ll want at least that many in your closet. It’s made with just two or three pieces and is suited for anyone with “confident beginner” level experience or more.
Techniques Involved: Applying knit bands, gathering and hemming straight and curved edges.
All files are PDF files that can be printed at home on Letter or A4 sized paper. Each pattern includes one file for the pattern and print-at-home pieces, and another file containing the copy shop A0 (33.1″ wide) pattern pieces. We’ve placed the pattern pieces on individual layers so you can print only the size(s) you need, saving you on paper and ink.
This pattern is designed for light to medium weight knit fabrics and requires at least 30% crosswise stretch. Pique, Tricot, Jersey, Interlock, and Rayon Spandex are just a few great options.
