Four! Five! Six!

It’s better than a birthday card! Celebrate the birthday boy or girl ‘s age with a big number on the front of this comfy raglan-sleeved sweater. The corresponding number of circles decorates the back and the same number of stripes adorns one sleeve.

We all know that no two kids are alike so this pattern has variations galore-select your neckline, hem and cuff treatments to make your creation unique. We also give you a choice of sizes ranging from two to eight years to allow you to customize the fit to the birthday child in your life. Happy Birthday!
