The hot trend for spring and summer is loose, open weave sweaters and I am in love! Using your favorite drapey top sewing patterns you can use a loose weave Hacci sweater knit fabric to get the same results as purchasing retail, but you save money and get the satisfaction of making it yourself...WIN WIN!
Wendy of With Wendy has a great video tutorial on how to make a slouchy top that will work perfectly for a light open weave version. Pair it with shorts or skirts, dress up or down. A wonderful season staple.
It's important to keep the baggy feel so make sure that you add to your pattern as Wendy easily shows you in the video. Remember, it's much easier to take in a garment than it is to take out!
We hope you enjoy this tutorial and please send 1-2 images of any project you make with Girl Charlee Fabrics to firstname.lastname@example.org and you might see your creation featured in our next KnitPicks!
