First of all this post is totally skipping the queue of all the things I have mentioned in my previous post but it's more exciting because it includes a pattern giveaway :-)
This pattern was originally real eased a wee while ago and at the time I contemplated requesting to test it but didn't have the time. When a call went out for testers for the extra versions of it to be added to the pattern I jumped at the chance, not in part because it gave me a chance to test something for Mr A when Miss M seems to have been profiting far more of late.
So what is Omni Tempore by Sofilantjes? Or maybe a better question is what isn't it? There are now so many options in this pattern. It is a perfect unisex top/tee/jumper all in one. With options for short or long sleeves both either cuffed or hemmed, hem or bottom band, hood or shawl-type collar and with or without kangaroo style pocket the possibilities are virtually endless.
As we are coming into summer here I tested the short sleeves with bands, hood and pocket and the result was a winner all round. The pattern runs from size 12m through to size 14, I made a straight 6 for Mr A with no mods and the fit is fantastic.
The only change I made to the pattern instructions is that I decided to bind the pocket openings rather than hemming them, that's just personal preference but the instructions for this aren't included in the pattern.
With such a wide size range and the fact that this pattern is completely unisex and can be used year round I can't think of any reason not to go buy it :-)
