Short Description: Mariko is the perfect canvas to express yourself with. Use a gorgeous gradient set, fade with your special yarn leftovers or make a solid version, you could add a pop to this with a contrasting zipper and/or cuffs and bands. The options are endless. Sized for Children through Teens (2-16) this will be perfect for keeping both boys and girls cosy and stylish in the cool months.
Mariko is knit top down, working the hood first, followed by seamless raglan shaping before separating for the sleeves. Perfect for an adventurous beginner, Mariko makes a fun first garment project.
