Pattern Description:

Rhun, my first design concept, is named after a cherished character from a favourite book, The Ancient Future by Traci Harding. The rhythmic cable pattern it knitted onto the garment making the pattern seamless and creates a lovely cuff pattern for the sleeves. The long back will help to keep babies warm as will the long sleeves. This pattern is fun but challenging (some helpful links have been provided in the pattern)
