Another LindenMay 27, 2017 / bythornberry / Categories : Feeds
I made the Grainline Linden top a couple of times last winter. I found it a great pattern for relaxed tops for those “at home” days. I also found it a great way to use up remnants. Got to love a raglan sleeve!
The patterned viscose blend knit came from the remnant bin at The Cloth Shop. The sold wool/acrylic blend knit came from Super Cheap Fabrics. I think that they combined really well in this top.
Because I’d sewn it before the pattern pieces already had any pertinent alterations made. I sewed size 10, with length removed from the sleeves both above and below the elbow.
From the Grainline website: The Linden Sweatshirt gives a modern update to the classic sweatshirt. Featuring a relaxed fit, raglan sleeves, and a graceful slightly scooped neckline, this sweatshirt is perfect for fall layering. View A features long sleeves with cuffs and falls to the mid hip with a lower ribbing band while View B hits at the high hip and has short sleeves. You can also mix and match sleeve and body lengths to create multiple versions of this sweatshirt.
This was constructed entirely on the overlocker. Because bands were used to finish the sleeves, hem and neckline it was very quick to assemble. I decided not to twin needle the neckband in place – it pressed well enough with the iron, and I was probably being too lazy to change the needle in the machine! Either way, its a nice relaxed addition to my wardrobe.

For me, old techie that I am, the disconnect between needlepoint and information has always been a baffling one. In the tech world of my previous working life there was a saying: Information wants to be free.
