What could be cuter than your child in a hoodie with ears AND a tummy patch? Nothing - thats what! Two different ear styles mean that you can mix and match the colours and ears to create your favourite critter. Round ears for Bears and Giant Pandas, pointy ears for Cats, Racoons and Red Pandas. Instructions are included for both styles. Cubby is a classic, oversized hooded cardigan with a button up front and simple drop sleeves. I have kept the styling simple and let the yarn do most of the work. This sweater is worked in a boucle yarn, but so long as you get a pleasing fabric in the correct gauge you could substitute a mohair, angora or even a regular wool yarn.

I love designing knitwear for babies and older kids too, I'm inspired by the world around me, whether it's the green bush covered hills where I live, or the bright city lights and sparkling harbor. I try to find a way to incorporate traditional, modern and whimsical elements into every garment I design. Children need to be comfortable and relaxed in their clothing, they need the opportunity to jump and run and paint without restriction. I try to design with these qualities in mind.
