Description: Family outdoor raglan sweaters with choice of neckline in a kind of "mock" fisherman's rib stitch, where every "knit 1 below" row is alternated with a plain rib row, and the needle size is also alternated. With this and the "thermal wool" they are certainly determined to keep you warm.
Also features a pom-pom hat and a scarf with pockets. [Very Cosy!]
