The GoTo Knit Top Pattern

This is one of my favorite “go to” tops right now. I can use thin jersey fabrics for a dressier look, or upcycled old tees for a casual every day look.

I recommend a serger for knits but this can be sewn with a regular machine as well. Perfect for tweens and adults.  The instant download PDF pattern includes the basic style and tips for piecing.

Here’s one I made from an old t-shirt, some yardage and a few knit scraps:

    How easy is it to make? After making the first one how long to make the second. Only asking that because it usually takes longer to make the first one than the others.

      It is SUPER easy to make! Very beginner knit!! It took maybe 30 minutes after I got the pattern assembled.
