I am still a little bitter about not being able to pursue ballet as a kid, because these little outfits are brilliant. These wrap cardigans are perfect for the budding dancer in your life but also suitable for any-day wear with two options for the sleeve length. Plus, legwarmers! So funky. I'm a fan of the garter stitch edging and tie on the bottom too. There's not enough garter stitch in the world.
We're going to recommend King Cole Pricewise DK for this, which is a hard wearing 100% acrylic yarn that will stand the test of time. However, if you're looking to make it truly special, the King Cole Merino Blend DK will keep the recipient warm in its gorgeous wooly shades.
