Your little one will look as adorable as a Little Lamb wrapped in this fuzzy sweater. It’s knit raglan style, so it’s top-down and seamless. The wrap cardigan construction allows plenty of room to grow, so it will fit longer as they get bigger. It can be secured with fabric or I-cord ties, perfect for easy on-and-off. Designed in fuzzy and soft yarns, this cozy cardigan will bring a big smile to your little one’s face. It’s a great present for any baby or toddler in your life, sized from 6 months to 4 years.
