Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Cast on, knit, purl, bind off
  • Pick up stitches

Pattern Description:

I don't think you need to be an experienced knitter to make a fashionable, fun and RIDICULOUSLY EASY short sleeved sweater top. So I've designed the "Ridiculously Easy Short Sleeved Top" for beginners who want to make something more exciting than a scarf.

The sweater is a quick knit, made all in one piece and seamed on the sides.

If you're looking to really impress everybody, I suggest you also purchase my "Ridiculously Easy Fashion Shrug" and knit both pieces as an ensemble. They will look gorgeous together and you can make it a casual ensemble, or a bit fancier for evenings out, depending on the yarn you choose.

As with all my patterns, if you have any questions as you work up the design, please contact me and I'll be happy to help. I want you to have an enjoyable knitting experience with a successful outcome.

NOTE: THANKS TO MY GOOD FRIEND SUSAN, WHO SERVED AS A MODEL. YOU'RE GORGEOUS, MY FRIEND!
