    I’m looking for O&S patterns that you all have successfully adapted to knit fabric. I’ve used some of the O&S patterns designed specifically for knits; but I’d like a little more variety, especially tops. I sew for my granddaughter who is a size 3T and grandson, size 7. Her busy mama loves the clothes I make from woven fabric, but not the ironing! Any suggestions?

    I made a sleeveless Sailboat top of knit. It worked out very well. There was also a recent long-sleeved version on the Flickr group.

    I’ll second the Sailboat top as I’ve made it 5 times now (3 dress adaptations and two tops) and ONLY made it in knit!

    I also really like the 2+2 blouse in knit (again I’m yet to sew one in a woven fabric) as I’ve found I can do away with the back closure and make it a pull on top.

    The Book Report has worked really nicely in a knit.

    The Jump Rope pattern makes a great girly polo shirt if you use a knit, with a woven collar and only make the top half. in saying that I think the View B of that pattern would be lovely in a knit.

    I’ll probably think of others….

    Nana (I loved my Nana), I made a Nature Walk from knit, http://www.flickr.com/photos/motherof5/5536379189/in/set-72157625263053850

    Also the Sleepover pj’s. http://www.flickr.com/photos/motherof5/6399327071/in/set-72157628144618165 I think the top of these would make an awesome little boys shirt.
