Here is a beautiful way to use that gradient yarn you’ve been coveting! This pattern uses DK weight yarn and traditional, top-down Raglan shaping, so it is very approachable. The show-stopping lace ruffles do the heavy lifting but are really quite easy to work.

Sample shown in Marianated Yarns Playtime DK colorway Drizzly Day and Jujubee gradient set colorway Princess Quail. I highly recommend a machine washable yarn like Playtime for sweaters for kids! It’ll save you such a hassle when you wash it.
