Pattern Description

Often marketed as a smart alternative to your favorite T-shirt, a henley top adds a stylish layer to your fall wardrobe. Elli features a scoop neckline, a henley placket with buttons, and full-length sleeves. It works well for all your favorite knit fabrics—and bonus points if you find a particularly cozy waffle knit.
