Little kids are just soo cute with this cardigan, looking like little elves with a super long hood ! I designed this for my daughters, inspired by a hooded jacket and my obsession for all things granny-square. Granny squares provide the shaping on the hood and around the hips. It also means that working this cardigan is never boring, and you can play with all sorts of color combinations ! The pattern contains detailed instructions along with many step-by-step photos. Instructions are also included to make this jacket without the hood.
