Hooded jacket for baby boy

A knitted hoodie will never go out of fashion, so make sure you add at least one to your little boy’s wardrobe, starting with this cool and casual
knit! You’ll love the easy garter stitch in this pattern from Peter Pan. There’s some gorgeous cable detail on the pockets to add a decorative touch, and the edgings are worked in cream contrast yarn, finishing it off beautifully. We have a similar pattern for little girls, too – turn the page for more details.
