This dashing sweater is reminiscent of the old man it’s named after, my Grandpa Elwood. Top down, raglan construction keeps it simple, while the bold stripes and textured shawl collar create a stunning product.

For those who aren’t afraid to rock the old man look, this one is sized from 6 months to adult XL, so you can make this for anyone you like. And with optional neck and waist shaping, you can make sure it fits whoever the intended wearer is.

Get Elwood as part of the Little Old Man Collection, for only $16!
