Got a budding ballerina to keep warm?
This is a plain raglan sleeve wrap cardigan designed specifically for new ballet students.
Plain in design to keep the ballet mistress happy.
Raglan sleeves for extra stretch.
Knitted in 100% wool, 4ply to minimise bulk while keeping your dancer warm.
Designed to fit a 4-5 year old with 2cm of positive ease, and to last until they grow out of it, or get tired of dancing.

The second photo is my daughter age 4. This has been made for her, and I would expect it to last at least 5 years. It’s very stretchy and cuff is rolled up once.

Skill level - Intermediate (full instructions for each side are not given, you must know how to work reverse shaping)
