Buy the Gable Top sewing pattern from Jennifer Lauren Handmade. With a classic 50s-inspired slash neckline, a long-line body for extra comfort and three different sleeve options, the Gable Top will become your new go-to knit top pattern.

Gable is perfect for wearing all year round — layered with dresses and cardigans on chilly mornings, or worn on its own with 3/4 skinny jeans or a high-waisted skirt à la Audrey in spring. Gable is a stylish weekend basic that can also be dressed up and added to your office outfit rotation.
