From the Archives – Cable Tunic by Debbie Bliss

Cables Tunic with Shawl Collar by Debbie Bliss from her book ‘Great Knits for Kids’ published in 1997. Andrea knitted it for our daughter Madeleine. She wore it first at 3 yrs with the sleeves rolled up and then till she was nearly 6 because there wasn’t a cuff on the sleeves or a waist band.
