October Pattern of the Month – Knit Ayda’s V Back Peplum Top & Dress and Sarah Ann’s Cuff Leggings & Capris

Ah, October.

I’ve often said that my favorite color is October. The leaves are officially changing here in this part of the country. I woke up this morning to beautiful reds, oranges, and yellows peeking through the trees in my back yard. And with these beautiful changes to the trees comes the cool, crisp October air. I don’t know about you, but my favorite thing about the cool fall weather is that it is officially leggings and long sleeves weather.

This month we have not one but TWO awesome patterns featured for our pattern of the month. Knit Ayda’s V Back Peplum Top & Dress and Sarah Ann’s Cuff Leggings and Capris.

The ever popular knit Ayda pattern features many of the same design elements as the woven version, including: V back, Tank top, flutter sleeves, Short sleeves, elbow sleeves and long sleeves. This also includes a gathered skirt, and a knit circle skirt in both top and dress length.

These cuff leggings are full of options. The yoga waistband makes these not only a quick sew, but a comfortable one! Sarah Ann’s can be made as capris or leggings. Optional features include a cuff ruffle, button tab, tab ruffle and/or a bow cuff. There are so many possibilities with Sarah Ann’s! These are sure to be your go to legging pattern!

 

New to knit? Don’t worry!! These patterns have helpful tips and tricks to make sewing with knits a breeze! You learn about what type of knit to buy, the preferred needles for sewing knits, and which stitch to use on your sewing machine. The best part about knits is that they don’t fray, so it is not necessary to hem them, although that is an option explained in the patterns. You’ll find that sewing knits is much faster than sewing wovens! These patterns will help you jump in and discover a love for knits (if you haven’t already)!
