I am super excited to have been chosen to test a pattern for Lydia at Little Kiwis Closet.
I printed and taped my pattern using her easy to follow directions and hunted out two colours of merino from my rather large stash (shhh don’t tell The Boy).
It is a simple raglan sleeve top, with a twist, it has side panels that give it a lovely bit of shaping and best of all the opportunity to play with colour, pattern and texture. The side panels are also a good opportunity to use up your scraps, especially those you save from expensive knits used in other projects.
The directions are straight-forward and easy to follow with clear photographs for each step. The top sews up in quickly and can be cut out and sewn in under an hour. It also comes in two sleeve lengths to suit the seasons, and could even be made in swimsuit fabric to make a rash shirt.
I am really excited by the possibilities with this top. It will definitely become a staple in this house for both the Captain and the Princess. Stay tuned for more versions, I have plans to add some pockets for my treasure gathering Princess too.
The pattern should be released sometime next week, I will keep you posted.
