Super comfy and oh so cosy children’s hoodie sewing pattern. This is the child’s version but it’s also available in matching ladies’ and men’s sizes!

The seams have been cleverly designed to be self-finishing which means all the raw edges are neatly tucked away out of sight.

Everyone needs a nice, cozy, deliciously comfy tracksuit top! The loose, relaxed fit is roomy, and the optional front pocket and hoodie cord add a little extra cool to this iconic garment that also features a slightly dropped shoulder for comfort.

  1. Alisa Kozak (verified owner)

    It was so super quick, literally it took me less time to assemble the garment than it did to assemble and cut out the pattern. We went to the mall and got loads of compliments and some asking where i got it. Very professional looking finished product.

  2. Melisa Harry (verified owner)

    The cowl is awesome and snugly. You need this pattern. 🙂

  3. Alyssa Arthur (verified owner)

    It’s an easy pattern and makes a super cute sweater.

  4. Kristen Shell (verified owner)

    Easy to follow and construct. It is a great pattern! I loved how easy it was to lines up all the pieces and follow along!!

  5. Amanda Maese-Herron (verified owner)

    It so versatile for either gender with many sizes available as well as easy to modify if need be.

  6. Kelly Ballou (verified owner)

    This is a great on-trend style for your child that is easy to make and ends up being so comfortable! I love how it turned out and how easy it went together.

  7. Angela Hamm (verified owner)

    This pattern is a must have. I love a fast sewing like this

  8. Kayla Mattinson (verified owner)

    This pattern is worth it. So easy to follow, and the garment at the end is so cute. Its very versatile, you can do this all in one fabric, 2 fabrics, with the pocket or without. I love it!

  9. Anne-Louise Olsson (verified owner)

    Its really flexible, (you) could do a lot with this pattern. I think this is a great base model. Will be using this again, have plans to extend it as dress pattern, and short sleeved.

  10. Kate Wright (verified owner)

    Buy it NOW!!!! Fits great, looks great, cowl neck to keep the neck warm (especially if you don’t like actually wearing a hood) and a warm hood for the cooler weather or wind outside. Use a thinner knit fabric for autumn or spring or thicker knits for winter. Love this pattern, great work 🙂

  11. Ashley Reuss (verified owner)

    It is such an easy and a fairly quick sew!

  12. Jill Auxford (verified owner)

    I love the unique idea for the hood/cowl! Also, great attention to detail with the stitching on the pocket. Definitely get it! 🙂

  13. Bec Munro (verified owner)

    Buy it! You’ll be *high five-ing* yourself when you do!

  14. Jamie Nino (verified owner)

    It was an easy pattern from start to finish and comfy to wear! The ease of it and love a pattern that prints in layers.

  15. Dorothy Hatfield (verified owner)

    Don’t let the fact that this is for knits scare you away from this pattern. It is so easy to make and the kids will love it!

  16. Vicky Boucher (verified owner)

    Quick and easy sew. It’s so comfortable and I love it so much!

  17. Tori Priest (verified owner)

    The perfect pattern to make a cozy fall sweater with an oversize cowl to keep your neck warm whether it is up or down!!

  18. Amanda

    Very cute and easy to put together, love the warmth of the hood.

  19. Erica Nemnich (verified owner)

    This cowl is super comfy and fun. Looks super cute on the baby.

  20. Jen Kolar (verified owner)

    This is such a great pattern! You will want to make a bunch of these cozy sweatshirts. The cuffs make it a perfect pattern to size up and get a few years of wear for the kiddo sizes. My children LOVE their Comfy Cowls!

  21. Margaret Snow Layman (verified owner)

    I procrastinated making this because the pocket and hood were both new to me. I don’t know why I worried. I followed the instructions and the pieces went together beautifully. I sometimes want to avoid the ironing, top stitching and other time consuming parts, but the results make it worth it. I can’t wait to make big brother a matching one!

  22. Nicole Librojo (verified owner)

    i love this hoodie for my boys. At first I was not sure if it would suit them, but I’m glad I tried it! the fit was spot on. The instructions were clear and the pattern is well drafted.

  23. Ummul Masakin (verified owner)

    I love the fit And the cowl and hoodie are cute together.

  24. Alyssa Finn (verified owner)

    The comfy cowl has got to be, hands down, my favorite cowl I’ve made. Every single time my kids put them on not only do THEY love it because it’s cozy but also a “hoodie” if they want it, but my husband compliments the design of it… He’s nuts over the dual “sweater” and “hoodie” aspect! My oldest loves it so much she went out of her way to point out several times that this is exactly the kind of shirt she had been asking me for over the past week. Off I go, to make some more! Thank you, thank you, thank you for the comfy cowl! It’s a BIG hit for us!

  25. Cara Girven (verified owner)

    The Comfy Cowl Hoodie lives up to its name…it’s so comfy! The way the cowl/hood is done is so ingenious, and there are so many ways you can style it. The fit is perfect as well, slightly fitted so it’s not boxy, but loose enough for a relaxed feeling. I would definitely recommend this as a great addition to your fall wardrobe.

  26. Emily Schimelfenyg (verified owner)

    I love the Comfy Cowl! So cozy and cute and a pretty fast sew.

  27. Kelly Nicholas (verified owner)

    The Comfy Cowl though is one that looks amazing on my son, without any hacking required. He loves that it has “a hat” (the hood) and a pocket. I love that he looks more stylish and less like I’m letting him run around in his PJ’s.

  28. Jess Boaz-Head (verified owner)

    This is an amazing fall/winter staple! It’s super cute with the hood up or down and it provides tons of warmth.

  29. Nici Ivey (verified owner)

    I made one of these for my little girl who is always cold. It was fairly simple to put together. I was a little surprised at the amount of fabric it took for such a small hoodie, but that cowl hood is so worth it! So cute!!

  30. Magda Rindmo (verified owner)

    Good pattern, fairly easy to make. Love the results!

  31. Adriana Benitez (verified owner)

    This pattern is well written, easy to sew, and adorable. It fits my children so well too. I love this pattern!

  32. Chubs Pineda (verified owner)

    Comfy Cowl is so quick and easy to assemble. I made one for my boy and it was perfect for a windy autumn days.

  33. Xuan Nguyen (verified owner)

    The Comfy Cowl is really a great staple for a children’s wardrobe, it’s a quick and really easy sew that you can use for both boys and girls. The possibilities for styling this hoodie is limitless and it has pockets!

  34. Kerry Wallman (verified owner)

    This pattern is very straightforward. The cowl hood is super cozy and lays nicely. Some other patterns I’ve done with a cowl option can look weird when it gathers around the neck, but this one is different. Great in the itty bitty sizes – it’s fun that baby can match mama!

  35. Brehan Adcock

    So far I have made 11 of these gorgeous hoodies. This pattern is my go-to for a quick, stylish, kids gift! The cowl is cozy, the hood is ginormous and totally keeps their little heads warm.
    It takes about an hour total to cut out and sew and the sizes really run true to measurements.

  36. Nadia Fovakis (verified owner)

    Easy quick sew producing a fun, practical garment.

  37. Casey Bray (verified owner)

    Quick and versatile piece. Perfect for showing off panels and I love the genius 2 in 1 hood/cowl piece.

  38. Casey-Marie Bray (verified owner)

    Perfect pattern to showcase panels and create a fun piece for the whole family.

  39. Lisa Dawson (verified owner)

    Great instructions included fun to sew for my son. I wiIll definitely make more It covers part of his face for colder days
