October #POM Challenge

Each month at our meetings we'll announce a Pattern of the Month Challenge -- or, a POM! The hashtag for this will be #SGGPOM, and you'll be able to find all our challenges under the #SGGPOM tag on social media or here on the website.

We had a good response to the our first #POM challenge, which was to make up a simple woven top. So this month's challenge is to take that top making mojo and try out a knit top!

There are many knit top patterns out there, and you can choose whichever one you like. But we have some suggestions for easy tees that you can whip up in a month.

Here are some ideas.

FREE patterns:

Mandy Boat Tee by Tessuti - a popular free pattern to download
The Maria Denmark Kimono Tee - this one is free if you sign up for her newsletter

Plantain by Deer & Doe (also free!)

Laundry Day Tee by Love Notions - free with a code if you join the facebook group

Jalie's Yoko Top - a free boxy turtleneck knit top for the colder days ahead.

And some that are not free but really charming too!

Halfmoon Atelier's La Brea Top - designed for knits or wovens and with some neat finishing details at the sleeve

Jennifer Lauren Handmade's Bronte Top has some cute features around the neck and shoulder too

Friday Pattern Company's Adrienne Blouse- if you want to add some extra flair to your knit top, this popular pattern with statement sleeves might just be the ticket!

If you make a knit top for our #POM challenge, don't forget to bring it along to show off in our Sew & Tell at the November 19 meeting.
