Little Nomad is a sweet, travel-worthy romper designed with far-away destinations in mind: a gorgeous Fair Isle yoke suitable for visits with family, a bottom button-placket to keep the sweater snugly in place, and extra room in the tushie to accommodate a diaper comfortably. With sizes from 3 months up to 18 months, you can rest assured knowing you have an on-the-go sweater that will be as comfortable for your child as it was enjoyable to knit.
Modeled by my four-month old son, who weighs about 15½ lbs. 7 kg here and is wearing the smallest size made with Caspian (main color) and Audouin (contrast color) colorways.

This romper pattern is offered as BOGO (buy one get one free) when purchased together with the Little Nomad Sweater. Past purchases apply!
