The minute the sun comes out and the leaves start to turn green, kids all over want to shed their winter coats. This thick cotton sweater is a comfy play outside sweater for spring or fall, and its bright colors will entice your squirming toddler to put it on! It’s quick to work up on an I hook, and has some nice stitch detailing without looking too girly for the very young men in your life. Choose your little friend’s favorite two colors and whimsical buttons to customize the sweater for a special someone.
