The Little Rhun, is the larger, child version of my first design concept, Rhun. It 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 children warm as will the long sleeves. This pattern is fun but challenging and includes a list of helpful resources.
