Alma's Ruffle Suit
This knitting pattern is in English.
Alma’s Ruffle Suit is worked from the top down with raglan increases. At the end the collar is worked by picking up and knitting stitches along the neck edge. Alma’s Ruffle Suit is closed at the back of the neck and between the legs with discrete little popper buttons. To make the collar lovely and smooth, it can be gently pressed with an iron after wash. Alma’s Ruffle Suit is designed to be narrow and close fitting.
