Rondje top

 This is the Rondje top from the Eli Monster.
 It's a very simple off the shoulder cardigan.
In it's simplest form it's a circle of fleece with sleeves.  The edges are left raw since fleece doesn't fray. It fastens in front with a button or two.
 It was such a quick thing to sew that I made a few. This one with the patterned fleece I used fold over elastic to encase the raw edge.
 It's a cute sweater but I decided I liked the raw edge better.
 I made this one with a lining. I think this is my favorite way but it takes twice the fabric and a bit more time.
 We like the huge button.
