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.

My first ever design - and available for free.

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)
