Now the awesome FREE Uvita Top pattern from Itch to Stitch, which I made when it first came out in dec 2017, has an Add-on pattern. Uvita itself is a relaxed knit top with boatneck and two sleeve length options. With the Add-on you can have Uvita with all these extra options:
- Unlined Hood with optional drawstring
- Floppy stand-up collar
- Sleeve cuff
- Sleeve cuff with thumbhole
- Flare sleeve
- Kangaroo pocket
- Patch pocket
- Bottom Band
- Layers feature (print only the sizes you need)
I choose to add a hood, sleeve with thumbhole and the bottom band to my new Uvita and I love it. So comfy and with all these extra options, there is plenty of possibilities for playing and creating all different kinds of styles.
Uvita comes together smoothly and very fast. The instructions are impeccable as always in Itch to Stitch patterns and the illustrations are clear.
I made this Uvita in a lovely french terry in cotton with a bit of lycra from Lila-Lotta. They have some gorgeous prints, so go check the out. This was in my stash, so it may not be available anymore. For this top I liked the bit of stretch the lycra gave. When I make Uvita again, I will choose a fabric with a little more stretch; just for comfort.
