The Rhubarb will be familiar to anyone who has seen it’s woven counterpart, the Raven. This knit version is my vision completed with the beautiful, ruffled yoke and a completely different bodice and sleeve to create a new look. The ties, the back band or the raised scoop give detail to the back. The banded hems and cuffs paired with the ruffle make a gorgeous sweater or comfy dress. The relaxed fit means this will last for a long time and every sewist loves that!

Light to medium-weight knits such as cotton lycra, interlock or double brushed poly. Sweater knits and other loose 4-way knits can be used, but length adjustments will be necessary for tunic and dress as the weight will pull the fabric down. These are better suited for the top.
Hem bands for sleeves and waistline of top require approximately 60% stretch.
**While many knits can be used, it is recommended to use a fabric with good recovery for the yoke lining when choosing a main fabric that does not have it. This will help to keep the neckline from stretching out.
