Update: 2011-07-29 I have just modified this pattern to now inlcude Children’s Sizing, in addition to the Baby and Toddler Sizing.

A sucker for all things cute, I changed the stripe colors from
the gray and white used in the adult version of the sweater,
to Kangaroo browns and added the knit Kangaroo ears for a
playful, and snuggly little sweater. Knowing that mommies don’t have time to hand wash, this pattern utilizes Berroco Comfort, a machine-washable, super-soft, worsted weight yarn making this sweater quick to knit and easy to care for.

The ears in this pattern are very easy to make, and with a little experimentation of the ear shape and size, as well as with the plethora of colors this yarn is made in, the possibilities for animals this little sweater become are endless: kangaroos, bunnies, kitties, puppies, armadillos, bats, foxes, owls, horses, dragons, tigers, piglets, monkeys, lambs, buffalo (horns and ears), bears, lemurs, zebras the list goes on and on … You could even add a tail.
