Generally really like your patterns. Maybe it’s me but didn’t see the notches at the neckline necessary to line things up to do the twist back which I found very hard to follow. It’s a cute top but I’m kind of disappointed

This was my first M4M pattern, and still a favorite! I was looking for a cute, nursing friendly top, and this definitely fit the bill. Instructions and pattern for the crossover were easy to follow, though I haven’t tried the twist yet. And my measured size was a great fit!
This is one of my favorites! I’ve made it true to size with rib knit and sized up to make slouchy sweaters from hacci. Watch the video that’s linked in the tutorial if you’re making the twist! Even after making it several times, I still go step by step with the video so I don’t make a mistake. Love this pattern!
