Pattern Description:

Pavlova Wrap Top:

"Ballet style wrap top in jersey ties at the natural waist while the back tucks into the skirt as a 'muffin cover.' The top is cut all in one piece with the sleeves, which may be cut longer or shorter."

This pattern is the granddaughter of Advance 7700, a clever wrap top pattern from the 1950's. It is suitable for most non-bulky jersey fabrics, as well as lightweight wovens.

Make the top with ties to match your waist measurement for a full-wrap.

Make the ties shorter to wrap it at the back.

Leave the ties off altogether and hem the front opening for a draped cardigan style. This is also suitable for sweater weight knits.

45 pages, suitable for A4 or US Letter size. 8 pages of instructions, 37 pages of pattern, complete with a tiling guide. Print page 1 of the pattern sheet first to check scaling. (choose 100% scaling when printing pattern sheet)
