Join us for our first knit-a-long of 2024: Ruth by Cocoknits!

To receive a FREE Ruth pattern:
1. Purchase a sweater quantity of Bread & Butter Everyday yarn
2. Sign up for the Knit-a-Long



Ruth strikes the balance between sophistication and comfort. It’s a straightforward Cocoknits method pattern with an incorporated collar, but the magic happens when you cross the front collar stitches, transforming it into a streamlined shawl collar pullover. Side vents add to the ease and wearability of the sweater.
