Your little girl is going to love this Rainbow Poncho. It features a hood for extra warmth. The poncho also has armholes, so she can still wear a backpack. It is knit from the crown of the hood down to the hem in one piece. The lace pattern adds an extra touch of “fancy” for your girl.

One size fits girls between ages 8 and 12
