This pattern is rated for a beginner and it is very very easy until you get to add the collar to the top. The instructions show the collar at the sleeve opening, so that is what I did...and was definitely wrong. After reading comments on this pattern, I know that I'm not the only one that had problems with this area. If a beginner would use this pattern they may get discouraged to figure out the problem and and also toss the whole thing. This pattern is great and with thinking about how to add the collar and not paying attention to the drawing it will work out great. Thank you Pattern Review reviewers for helping out.

I made one in a nice navy knit and it looks great. I did not use the instructions so went back and reread the instructions. I don't see the sewing the scarf to the armhole instructions you mentioned. The only change I made was that I did not bother with the seam in the back of the scarf, just cut it on a fold.

Thank you for your reply. It really is a nice top and very easy to sew with the results looking great. One question that I have is did you seam the part of the scarf that would be tied? I don't plan on fringing it. Any hints on how to stop the knit from curling?

I did not fringe mine either. I cut the scarf with a fold along the long side, sewed and turned. Also cut the scarf end with an angle (point).

You could put beads on the ends to stop the curling. I am thinking of something like that for a tan one I plan to make.

Sunshine, you could also topstitch 3 rows across the ends to add weight plus interest so it would lay down, or use a narrow strip of ribbon or such across the ends inside.

I put a Review of this up earlier. Mark that outside jog section, that's what goes towards the inside neck seam, which may confuse with the sleeve.
I ironed the SA toward the top, then top-stitched to help the roll. No seam in scarf, can cut extra long, doubled, or loop it into a fake cowl.

I like the side and bottom curves on this pattern, so I use it for quick cap-sleeve T's too. Lots of variations possible--V neck with a bias binding, ragged strip binding on the outside neck, ruffle around the neck or down the middle front seam, change to a U-neck.

Thank you all for the great solutions. Yes, this pattern could be used for a number of variations, and since it fits it's going to be a TNT for me for sure.
