Inspiration: Unicorns are present in many children’s clothing and often the little ones choose to wear those sweaters that have a Unicorn image to one knitted by us. What if we mix the unicorn with knitting and offer them this sweater? I’m sure they won’t hesitate to wear it.

Sizes: 2 (4, 6, 8, 10, 12) years old
