Description: Two patterns for young children or toddlers: a plain knit sweater with a simple but effective fair-isle pattern in two colours; a textured raglan sweater in a staggered moss stitch, where every alternate row is knitted plain.
The pattern has a horizontal crease, folded corners, and few marks from a previous user, but is in generally good usable condition.
