A novel take on the festive-motif knit, this chunky fleece-lined cardigan will keep little tykes warm all winter, says kidswear editor Maggie Davis
The classic Christmas jumper is as popular as ever, but I prefer this cuddly zip-up polar bear-motif cardigan. A more subtle take on the novelty-knit theme, this is the kind of piece that active boys can sling on quickly and comfortably in chilly moments, without fear of looking uncool. The chunky fleece lining and hood will ensure he’s snug, while the Fair Isle pattern means he also gets to retain his style credentials (so it’s a great Christmas gift idea, too). Available for boys aged 5-14 and machine-washable at just 30 degrees, this practical, on-trend piece is one you’ll end up loving as much as your kids do.
