I initially designed the R&R Hoodie pattern for my son Rowan when he was a baby. As he grew, and started to outgrow the original hoodie pattern sizes, it became pretty obvious that not only did I need to make the pattern available in a wider range of sizes, but that the new wide range would include a version that I could wear as well! Why should our kiddos have all the fun when it comes to knitwear? Sure, they’re wee and adorable, but classic designs deserve to be worn by everyone.
The classically cool hoodie - A wardrobe staple for men, women and babies alike features the quintessential kangaroo pockets, zipper and hood, and it has become one of my sons most worn handknits because it just seems to always be appropriate. The hood fits snugly over the head (and stays on!) so it doubles as a hat on cooler days. Don’t let the zipper scare you off! Though it takes a bit more effort during installation, it more than makes up for it in ease of use.
