This children’s sweater packs a lot of surface interest into a small space, much like its namesake. Ruhnu, a small island off the coast of Estonia, contains a rare breed of sheep, a wooden church from the seventeenth century, and a lighthouse designed by Gustave Eiffel. Here, the texture comes from wrapped stitches, which you’ll find fun and easy to work.
