Gramps by tincanknits

We think it’s hilarious how babies sometimes look like old geezers, so we created this shawl-collared grandpa sweater for your grouchy little old man! Suit him or her up and no matter how grumpy, your child will be stylish.

And YES, despite reasonable common-sense notions, babies DO require pockets to store their tiny little pipes, and patches to prevent them from wearing holes through the elbows of their cardigans after years of use! Make an adorable matching sweater for yourself too.
