I released my Baby Bear Hoodie pattern a few months ago, and since then I have been working on a toddler version of that pattern. As I am a perfectionist and currently test all of my patterns myself, this has taken me longer than I would care to admit. I have had quite a few requests for larger sizes and I am delighted to now be able to say that I have finally finished the Toddler Bear Hoodie pattern! This pattern is for sizes 1-2y, 2-3y and 3-4y, or from around 20″-22″ chest. The pattern has been made with around 5″ of ease included, to allow for layering. The hoodie can be made without the bear ears, but I think they add an extra touch of cute.
The hoodie is made using two strands of double knit yarn held together throughout, with 5mm and 6mm crochet hooks. The pattern is easy to follow and is suitable for beginners, although basic knowledge of crochet is needed. I have written the pattern using US terminology.
You can find the toddler hoodie pattern in my Etsy shop, alongside my other PDF patterns and a few things I have crocheted and are ready made for sale. The baby sized version of this pattern is available here, and for a combined pattern to fit from newborn to 4 years, click here.
