What could be cuter than your child in a hoodie with ears AND a tummy patch? Nothing - thats what! Two different ear styles mean that you can mix and match the colours and ears to create your favourite critter.
Round ears for Bears and Giant Pandas, pointy ears for Cats, Racoons and Red Pandas. Instructions are included for both styles.

Cubby is a classic, oversized hooded cardigan with a button up front and simple drop sleeves. I have kept the styling simple and let the yarn do most of the work.

This sweater is worked in a boucle yarn, but so long as you get a pleasing fabric in the correct gauge you could substitute a mohair, angora or even a regular wool yarn.
