I came across this Free Pattern by Deer and Doe last week. I thought it looked easy, and cute for fall, so I whipped one up. It took me just a few hours, I put the whole thing together over the course of one day. (Please forgive my strange, bulgy back pocket- I forgot to take my car keys out- fail).
To all my friends who have a fear of knits: this is a great pattern to learn how to work with knits! The instructions are very clear, and simple to follow. She even illustrates what stitches to use with knits, and other great details. I edited the neckline very slightly to be a little higher than the pattern allowed. I blindly followed the pattern, and my arms must be freakishly long because my elbow patches were up a little too high for my elbows, so make note to double check placement! I also made my pattern even longer than the biggest size in length, and it still ended up being shorter than I would like. Other than those two issues, I’m really happy with this pattern.
I just used cotton jersey knit fabric I had on hand. Check out Girl Charlee for all of your knit needs!
