New Togs For Tots Pattern 
Ripley Sweater"Ripley" Inspired by the Ripley Hat, I've taken the same basic design element and applied it to a bottom-up raglan. Why bottom up? The ripples tend to lean in the direction from which they are knitted. Had I designed the  easier top-down version, the ripples would have looked a bit odd defying gravity! The pattern is written in four sizes for Kids aged from 2-8 years.  
You can get a head start on the pattern by ordering it today - deliverable via download or US Mail. We do expect to have kits in multiple colorways available in the New Year. Shown here in Tahki Cotton Classic for its lovely rich coloring and easy care, you can of course use any yarn of your choice that matches the 5.5 sts/inch gauge.
