This is a deliciously squishy seed stitch garment that will make a little one even more huggable than usual – especially when you get a look at the cabled heart motif on the back! It’s a layering piece, which can donned quickly and easily for extra warmth. Unisex construction means that you can re-sew the buttons on either the left or right band whenever you may want to switch.
