This darling sweater and hat set can be worn by boys and girls, ages 2-10 years. Simple cables adorn the set, and simple construction without seaming can be accomplished by an advanced beginner. The sweater is top-down construction with raglan sleeves while the hat is made from the brim to the top. There are also instructions for a pom pom!
