I love classic, squishy sweaters on children โ€“ but it can be hard to find on that looks equally great on boys and girls. Caius is a raglan sweater knit in the round from the bottom up and features a dynamic center panel that looks great in a variety of yarns. Caius is designed for the littlest littles up to age 6 and has a wide neck opening so that bundling up your little sweetheart will be tear-free for everyone.

Choose a size with a chest measurement that is LARGER than the child’s actual chest - kids grow!
