Meet the Chestnut Sweater & Top sewing pattern!

Easy sweater and top pattern for beginners

Meet the easy sweater sewing pattern Chestnut that comes with two different options and lots of possibilities to play around so that you can make it your own.

The sweater has a more relaxed silhouette and fit and its hem rests at upper hip level, so it has a kind of cropped feeling to it. The top has a closer fit and lays at hip or lower hip level if you are looking for more coverage.



Pattern options

First, you can opt for the option with three bows at the back 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 seam, and a bow.


The top has a slightly longer back and two slits at either side of the hem; meanwhile, the sweater offers two sleeve lengths: 3/4 sleeves and long sleeves.

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

And you can combine it with jeans, skirts and for layering during the colder months.
