Dear Pru

Dear Pru Logo



This product is a digital knitting pattern designed by Pru Raymond.

This chunky cardigan is named after the home of the Big Rocking Horse in South Australia.

It is designed to be a fun, quick, slouchy garment for knitters of all sizes. The unusual construction provokes different thinking about sizing and seaming.

NOTE: some maths is required! The pattern involves measuring yourself, swatching, and using that information to knit a garment that fits any knitter/ knitworthy recipient.

When you buy a Dear Pru knitting pattern, you’ll get a PDF sent to your email and can grab it from your account. We’ll keep you posted on updates.

But remember, these patterns are just for you and your knitworthy friends and family to enjoy- no selling of the PDF pattern or items knitted from the pattern. Happy knitting! ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿงถ
