Now your kid can be Halloween appropriate while staying snug in this intarsia-fest spooky sweater.  This sweater has drop shoulders and a crew neck for an oversized casual fit.  The back is left plain, so it knits up pretty quickly too.  This will be one skeleton you’ll be glad to let out of the closet!
