What better way to spark a smile (and a giggle) than a cozy hoodie with ears? Make this stylish, imaginative cover-up for your favorite little one to enjoy in the fall or spring.
In this Workshop, you will work this almost-seamless cardigan from the bottom up, including the hood. The textured fabric and weight of this garment makes it suitable for fall or spring, and not too warm for those with mild winters. If you are preparing for an extra-chilly winter, just use a slightly heavier yarn at gauge for a warmer sweater.
Learn how to shape the hood to fit the curve of your little one's head. Then, just for fun, accentuate that darling face with a pair of cute ears on top. (Or, you can follow instructions to skip the ears.) For a roomier fit, go a size up.
Unisex 6 months, 12 months, 18 months, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 (Shown in 6 months)
18.5, 20, 21.25, 22.75, 24.75, 26.5, 28.25, 30 inches
