Pattern Description:

RiFFs from Cake Patterns are thoughtfully drafted patterns with minimalist instructions and packaging- it's all about the drafting! This top uses logic and your raw measurements at the front waist, full bust and hip measurements so each top will have a fully customized fit! RiFF patterns feature the same intuitive sizing and sewing as other Cake Patterns, without the extra instructions illustrations.

The Cabarita knit top has cap or elbow length sleeves ending in a wide banded cuff. The front roll collar is based on a 1930's knitting pattern and fits very well into a modern wardrobe. Optional v-shaped "dessert stripe" bias cut back for extra effect and a more flattering fit. The pattern includes a cutting line variation for a plain cut back neck as well as stripe guides for a designer effect!

Cabarita is a rocky beach in northern New South Wales, beloved by the locals for its surfing and its beauty. This chic and easy to wear top is the perfect summer staple in stripes or in plain fabric.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 30"-55"/76-139cm full bust
  • hip, waist, and front length guide lines printed on pattern to easily customize your fit


  • Ballpoint Needles
  • Jersey fabric (see envelope back)

You Will Also Need:

  • 1-2yd/m of 1/2" 12mm wide fusible stay tape
