plaid knits available). There wasn't much left and since placement mattered with this fabric I had left it for when inspiration struck. The grey knit was in my stash also, no idea where it came from!
For my version I used Vogue 1261 which I have made before as the basis. I added width to the sleeves, which are pretty narrow in this pattern.
Hot Cocoa Sweater pattern in a blog (it's free!) and I had liked how the back was longer than the front but in a gentle curve so I used the bottom of this pattern to shape my hem and then measured and cut a band to fit. I also added cuffs to the sleeves and cut a wider band for the neckline than the recommended width in the Vogue pattern.
As you can see my version is longer than the inspiration and the neckline not as high. I'm very happy with mine I think my changes make this top more versatile.
