On a Whim by Amy Herzog

Sometimes, a knitter just needs to throw deadlines to the wind and knit something new. At least, that's how I felt when I took a break from mad book deadline knitting and whipped up these simple tees. On A Whim is a super-simple, super-wearable basic tee shirt of a sweater, with a flattering scoop neck and an easygoing a-line shape.

It features a slightly-wider-than-average neckline, and is shown in a long sweater length and 3/4 sleeves on Amy, and tunic length and elbow sleeves on Morgan. But you can choose whatever combination of lengths you like! On A Whim is shown here in two different Indigodragonfly yarns, and the subtle shifts of the color compliment the simple silhouette.

On a Whim is an a-line design, so your sweater pattern will have no waist shaping. The hem will be larger than the bust/chest by at least 4 inches (10 cm), with shaping worked along the side seams. You can adjust the dimensions by clicking 'customize fit specifics'. You can use any measurement set to create this pattern.

On a Whim uses the following design choices:

  • Style: pullover
  • Silhouette: A-line silhouette
  • Length: Low-hip length
  • Sleeves: Three-quarter-length tapered sleeve
  • Neck style: Custom-width scoop neck
  • Neck depth: 6"/15 cm below shoulders
  • Finishing:
    • Hem edging and height: 2x2 Ribbing, 1½"/4 cm
    • Sleeve edging and height: 2x2 Ribbing, 1"/2.5 cm
    • Neck edging and height: 2x2 Ribbing, 1"/2.5 cm
