Ruthie - a pretty and versatile cardigan, perfect for changing seasons.
Knit long sleeves for a cozy winter cardy, or short for a great layering piece for autumn and spring. The flirty lace skirt makes this a pretty addition to any wardrobe.
Ruthie is a raglan style cardigan, knit top down and seamlessly in DK/8ply yarn. It includes options for both short and long sleeves. The lace part of the skirt is written only.
Sized to fit approx 2y - 10/12y (chest 53cm - 73cm).
Instructions are included for the optional crochet 'button' closures. You will need a 3mm hook and be able to make a magic ring. You can use ordinary buttons instead if you wish!
Ruthie has been tech edited and test knit.
