Little Roland is a child’s version of the Roland sweater, which I designed for my really cool brother. This version is fit for a smaller version of a cool person!

Buy Roland AND Little Roland, and get $3 off. Discount is automatically deducted. This counts towards previous purchases as well.

The sweater is a raglan top-down pullover with a patterned body and sleeves. The straight lower body makes this a unisex design, fit for both boys and girls. And as a bonus, this sweater is truly reversible – be sure to pick up those neckline stitches carefully, and it’ll be possible to wear Roland either side out - whichever you like best!
