Cabled Pink Baby Sweater with Yoke


The cables of this cuddly-soft sweater will wrap your little one in extra-cozy warmth. The neck opening makes this one of the easiest pullovers to “pull over” the head of a squirmy little-one. Of course Simply Soft makes this sweater even better-soft, warm and washable.
