I've been using an alternate hoodie pattern and have been very unimpressed with the hood and fit of the product. I came across this pattern and decided to give it a go. I absolutely adore this hoodie. Some perks to it is a wide hood that isn't too tight for toddlers. The slim fit is far more flattering than the baggy fit of most other patterns. The only reason this didn't receive 5 stars is the length of the sleeves (long sleeve) are far too long and I'm worried about them being too tight around the shoulders when using sweatshirt fleece verses a cotton lycra. The sew up time from start to finish is under an hour which is amazing.
Looks great in fleece just be sure to size up. I did find the arms to be too long though so I normally shorten them.
My boys were so excited that mommy finally made them something! Love it!
Super easy to follow. Directions make knit less intimidating. This is my favorite hoodie pattern and is great for both boys and girls.
This pattern is simple, and goes together perfectly, this winter we had several hanging in the closet
I loved how the Toby brings out my creativity. Having three girls who love hoodies, this pattern is a keeper. Thank you, CKC!
Toby's was my first ever full knit project. I was terrified, but having worked with CKC's amazing patterns in the past, I knew I could count on their amazing instructions to help me pull it off. It turned out amazing and I'm no longer afraid of knits!
Great pattern. I've made several "girlie" versions for our daughter and we get tons of compliments every time she wears one. Pattern is written for sewn hems/ seams, as knits don't require finishing, and uses very basic concepts. Toby's is a great knit starter pattern to help build confidence.
