This comfy sweater is the Baby Bear Hoodie all grown up. Still casual and comfortable, but with some refinements such as a rounded hood (for those who don’t want to look like an elf) and set in sleeves for a less baggy silhouette. Just like it’s smaller counterpart, it’s knit all in one piece in the round - so you can forget about seaming! With a very extensive range of sizes, you can make one for all the big(ger) kids in your life!
