Renfrew and Day to Night Top

I picked up this piece of wool blend knit in the remnant basket at Knitwit. There was exactly the right amount to make a Day to Night Drape Top. This is a great pattern for someone who doesn't usually like PDF patterns as it isn't huge, there aren't too many pages to print off and stick together.
It went together very easily. I like the way the neckline is constructed.
The only change I made was to the arms. I left off the elastic and cut a piece of fabric to and added it just like you would do a neckline on a knit top. I'd really like to make this again and add the sleeves from the Birgitte tee which fit this pattern.

I needed something to wear under this top in winter so I finally made a Renfrew. I used another fabric I picked up on sale at Knitwit. I think I might be the last sewer to make a Renfrew so I'm not sure there is anything to say about this pattern that hasn't already been said. It is easy, quick and I really like the way the arms and waist are finished with bands.

Love your new top. You do such beautiful work. You look really nice in the top and jeans and I love your hair color.
