Applesauce Top was originally designed for Yarningham’s magazine, Yarn+Stitch, released in Nov 2021. I’ve since added a sleeveless option, as well as altered the formatting to be in my own style.

This top was designed to be customizable. From the very beginning, you choose the two colors and decide if you want high contrast or subtle, then you get to decide throughout the top which colors you want for each edging. Decisions like these can make a huge difference in how your own tee will look, but you’re still creating the same Applesauce top.

It reminded me of the fall, and how nice it is to see all the varieties of apples come in; then experiment with making homemade applesauce. Each one comes out different, and yet each one is delicious in it’s own way. If you’ve never made homemade applesauce, I highly recommend it! It is so much better than the store bought, and you can make it to the consistency that you like!
