Today I have the pleasure of being the next stop on the Knight Hoodie Pattern blog tour by Charming Doodle.
When I first saw this pattern I knew that my son would just go crazy over it…and I was right!
My son has been complaining a lot lately that I always make stuff for the girls but never make him anything. Sadly is so right. So this year I am attempting to make more things for him.
I made my son a 5t which is the size he is wearing right now. I think the fit is perfect, but will also fit him for a few seasons. I used some sweatshirt fleece that I purchased from Jo-Ann’s. The pattern calls for ribbing on the cuffs and on the bottom but I was unable to find any so I just used some of the sweatshirt fabric instead. Due to the lack of stretch in the sweatshirt fabric I did have to make adjustments to those pieces. I just had to add a little extra length to the pieces. Not a big deal, but just be aware of it before you cut out your pieces if you end up having to use just the sweatshirt fabric as well.
The hood is by far my son’s favorite part and who could blame him?! I should have taken a picture with the hood off and unzipped a little bit. The way the flap lays on the collar is so cool.
My favorite thing about the knight hoodie is all the top stitching on it. I just love the way it looks! It looks more store bought then handmade.
Doesn’t it look so comfy too? Comfortable and stylish!
What more does a little boy want?
