Such a great top! I had never knitted with such fine yarn but the shirt came out great, really nice stretch, I’m a size L generally but went with the size M stitch count and was glad I did. I added an extra couple of inches before and after the increases because I’m tall, and it’s still quite cropped, so if you want to cover your belly, definitely add several inches to the pattern before the increases begin. All in all easy to follow and I appreciated the tutorial video as well. Thank you!

Very nice pattern! I just made it longer and added some decrease before starting the strap. Very happy with the fit!

Great pattern! This was my first time knitting with a pattern, and the first time knitting something other than a sock, so I would consider myself a beginner. This pattern was really easy to follow, everything is clear and understandable and the picture at the bottom really helped me understand the increases in the beginning! Can only recommend!

The pattern for these shorts is great! They knitted up really quickly, within a couple of days. Easy to work in the round and the pattern was written simply and was easy to understand. Very happy, would definitely recommend.
