It’s BABY TIME! I made this little hoodie & hat set for my brother who’s expecting!! This easy baby hoodie is cinched with a pull cord and comes with a matching hat! Perfect for Fall/Winter and makes a lovely Christmas present that crochets up quick. I made this with 100% Washable and Dryable on High Heat yarn! Always a must for my every day baby projects.

Crochets up quick! Clear and easy to follow. I crocheted the piece exactly as the pattern instructions directed. I did not choose a contrasting color for the border but still completed the edges as directed.
I had some issues with the number of stitches matching up with the stitches in pattern but assumed it was just me since this pattern has been done by many others on Ravelry without anyone mentioning this. I just made sure the corners were correct.
I made a thicker pull cord by chaining 30″ then going back and slip stitching through back post of each chain!
