A noble cabled masterwork lets a girl ride with her hounds in pursuit of the questing beast, explore a ruined keep, or just sink into a good story on a wintry day. Vika looks dashing in any color of Shelter, so pick your child’s favorite for this wardrobe capstone. The intricate cables are a venturesome knitter’s delight. The body and sleeves are knit flat and sewn together, and the ribbed collar is picked up and worked in the round. If your child rebels against turtlenecks, Vika is equally beautiful with a shorter collar folded and sewn to the inside for a crew neck.
