Rowan Tree Turtleneck PDF TOP PATTERN-
Basic fit version

This is a digital download pdf pattern for a children’s Turtleneck top. Age range 12mths-14yrs. 

The Rowan tree turtle neck has been designed as smart casual t-shirt style top. It can be worn plain or you can make use of the clever sleeve blocking options to maximise fabric scraps and remnants. 

The faux under-top band and sleeves allow the maker to create the illusion of an all in one layered t-shirt top. With long and short sleeve options and a turtleneck, this is the idea pattern for cool and cold weather.

It contains a full photo tutorial, a lookbook for inspiration and 2 pdf printing file options with layer features – A0 and A4/US letter sizes. The A0 option is also projector friendly.

Suitable for a confident beginner and those with more experience.
It comes with a cottage licence.

Part of the Foragers range. Simple and classic everyday wear for children. 

This is the Basic fit version. Please read blog post here on the differences between the versions.


IMPORTANT – This is the basic fit version. There are 2 other listing bundles – one for close fit  and one for both fits.

Make sure you buy the correct fit as there are no refunds on digital items.

Fit information
This is the basic fit version and is a semi loose fit around the arms scye in comparison to the close fit version.

 If the wearers arm scye measurements are close to or under scye measurements for that height, then you may find this version is too loose and the closer fit is prefered. The ease around the body is around 4cm depending on fabric choices and about 2.5cm in the arm scye area.
