I made this pattern so that I can make hooded sweatshirts for the boys, but the materials I chose for this first draft lend themselves perfectly to be worn with or without something underneath. I tend to like muted colors and neutrals -but WOW do I love this pop of color mixed with grey (my favorite neutral at the moment!!!)
I used an XL men's polo shirt and two women's M tops to make these.
My original plan was to add kangaroo pockets - and I may add them later, but honestly - I love these just the way they are.
There is something about the way the hoods fit that reminds me of Monty Python's Holy Grail - but I'm cool with that.
And I think my boys loved their hoods - as they gleefully ran around all day with pointing at their hoods saying "Hat, hathathathat..."
*I apologize for the terribleness of these pics - my point and shoot decided to hate me, and I didn't want to lug out the real deal ;op

Anything that they don't want to take off, I deem a success!
