What a baby boomer – Toddler Sweater


Hook up this super-sweet jumper with a bright pompom pop for tots, ready for autumn chills!

We are firm believers that adding a pompom trim to anything makes it even better and this two-tone sweater by Emma Bassey is no exception. Hooked up in a soft alpaca blend, kids will love the feel as much as the look. Emma’s pattern covers ages from 18 months to five years, so you could make the full set. It’s the Christmas jumper that will last all year.
