This super simple knit top design has only two pattern pieces! In 3  hours you'll make this comfy top with  square neck and raglan sleeves.

This is a great choice if you have made a few simple garments like our PJ pants or Shell Top and you are now keen to learn to use the stretch stitches on the sewing machine and understand how to set up the machine.

The longer length bodice is perfect for tucking in to pants and skirts, or it's great over leggings for a bit more coverage. During construction you can choose to use the overlocker if you like. Learn a few tips about working with knit/stretch fabrics that will change your life.
