Gramps Kit, ready to ship

Gramps by Tin Can Knits

It's no wonder that this precious cardigan has been a bestseller on Ravelry. It's a classic sweater, and we've put together kits for babies and adults. Definitely a cardigan that never goes out of style, and knit with worsted weight, it will knit up quickly, too!

"We think it’s hilarious how babies sometimes have an elderly look about them, so we created this shawl-collared grandpa sweater for your grouchy little one! Suit your little one (or big one!) up and no matter how grumpy, they 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." -- From the designer
