Pattern Description from MarnieMacLean.com: “Is there anything cuter than dressing little children up as animals? This pattern was originally a design for my boss’s son, James, born this summer. I’ve reworked the pattern a little and made it with a yarn called Catnap for a piece that is not only easy to care for, but is so soft you might decide you want to adapt the design to your own size. This piece is sized for infants but you could easily rework any hoodie pattern of any size to make one for larger tots. If you want to get a few more months out of it, Double the length of the sleeve ribbing and fold up the bottoms for the first few months.”


  • Small: Chest=21” Length=10”
  • Medium: Chest=23” Length=10.5”
  • Large: Chest=25” Length=11”


  • 2 Skeins of Catnap in Green for small or medium, 3 for large
  • 1 Skein of Catnap in Purple
  • US #10.5 needles
  • US#9 needles
  • G Crochet hook
  • Tapestry Needle
  • 10” Separating zipper
  • 36” Shoe lace or other tie for hood

Yarn Substitution: Cat nap is a chenille like, microfiber yarn. I have knit this piece with TLC Amore with good results. Most worsted or aran weight yarns will work fine for this piece, just remember to choose something machine washable.
