Chestnut Sweater & Top

From CocoWawa Crafts:

Make the super cozy Chestnut Sweater and Top sewing pattern! It comes with two different options, lots of possibilities to play around with and… bows!

The super comfy Chestnut Sweater and Top sewing pattern comes with two different options and lots of possibilities to play around with.

First, you can opt for the sweater with three bow options or the top with the same alternatives. Version A of either of them has a lovely circular opening at the back that closes with a big bow; version B sports four bows at the back closing the bodice; and option C offers a more subtle bow alternative with a nice slit or vent at the shoulder. The top has a slightly longer back and two slits at either side; meanwhile, the sweater offers two sleeve lengths: 3/4 and long sleeves. Take a good look at all the options and pieces on before you decide.

With lots of detailed instructions, technical drawings and tips to get the best results when sewing with knit fabrics, the Chestnut Sweater and Top will become a staple, with a twist, in your handmade wardrobe.
