The ladies’ Comfy Cowl is one of our most popular patterns and it was time to include the dudes in that awesomeness! Everyone needs a hoodie, and now everyone can have one with the mens hoodie sewing pattern that goes hand in hand with the ladies and children’s.

Just like the ladies’ Comfy Cowl, the men’s is also a super comfy (it’s right there in the name!) hoodie, perfect for lounging about the house or dressing up and keeping warm in cooler weather. Comfy is all about total comfort.

The loose, relaxed fit is roomy, and the optional front pocket and hoodie cord add a little extra cool to this iconic garment with a slightly dropped shoulder for comfort.

  1. Susanne Holm

    I have sewn the comfy cowl for my son, and he loves it. It is roomy so he can wear a tee under it with no issues. He prefer it as a cowl option, but loves that he can pull the cowl up and make it to a hoodie, and just feel warm and comfy in it

  2. Elise Vanaman

    Love how quick and simple this pattern is! Hubby loved the fit and already requested more, so time to get cutting!!!

  3. Julie McKenzie

    Fantastic, easy to sew pattern. The tips for sewing knits are fantastic and helped to produce a great result. Instructions are clear and easy to follow. Using different weights of knits will make this a versatile pattern no matter what the weather outside is doing, from jersey knit to polar fleece I will be making a multitude of the Comfy Cowls for all the men, young and old, in my life.

  4. Natalie McCormick

    Overall I think this pattern came together pretty well. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. My husband was happy with fit and will wear it.

  5. Agnes Bobak

    It is a treasure for beginners! Easy and quick success maker! I wish I had this pattern 10 years ago when I had more time to sew to my husband! Thanks Rebecca for this amazing pattern!

  6. Tracey Aslin

    I enjoyed this sew. It was quite straightforward and quick but gave a greasy funky result. The length of the body and arms was good on my long thin son.

  7. Margaret Snow Layman

    This was my first time making a top for my husband and this one was a great first one. It was nice to be able to adjust the size to fit him. The pattern went together easily. The only part I had to show down in was double checking that I sewed the good together correctly. We are both happy and he has put in an order for another one. I may have started something. Thanks for a great pattern!

  8. Katie Droskiewicz

    This hoodie is seriously COMFY! My husband wasn’t sure he would like the look of it, but he has yet to take it off because it is so dang cozy! I think that’s a major win!

  9. Stephanie Carnovale

    Finally I can sew something my husband is happy to wear! The pattern was so easy to follow, a great pattern if you are a beginner with stretch fabric.

  10. Tracey Vink-Fox

    The directions are very easy to follow and the construction and sewing of the garment benefit from this. The overall fit is a relaxed loose fit giving the sweater a more casual feel and is suitable for many age groups and activities.

  11. Amber Rivera

    I love it. Hubby loves it!

  12. Addie Randolph

    This pattern was a quick and easy sew! Can’t wait to make many more!!!

  13. Kim Wester

    This is a quick sew for confident beginners. The Comfy Cowl is a loose-fitting, comfortable pullover. It was simple to grade between sizes, and the directions were thorough and easy to follow.

  14. Whitney Lewandowski

    The pattern was easy to follow and easy to use. Sizing was perfect. Thanks!

  15. Adriana Benitez

    Such an easy pattern to follow and it fits great! The directions are clear and you know what you’re doing. There’s even tips scattered throughout. Also I love that now there’s a men’s version to get the whole family in comfy cowl hoodies.

  16. Fana

    What a dream to sew up! one of my most satisfying makes. The instructions were so easy to follow and the end result was more than i could ask for. Love the design and will be making more! Thanks RP for another awesome pattern!

  18. Dani Arthur

    Is there such thing as a dressy hoody?? I guess now there is! My husband looks so handsome in this sewn with a Euro marle french terry. Love the great instructions for a quite simple sew with a great finish.

  19. Rachel Ellis

    I’m in love with this pattern and my family are too.
    Finding great patterns for men especially larger men is not that easy but this ticks all the boxes…..and he asked for more!!!!!!
    Easy to download, print and I can’t praise the instructions enough they are very comprehensive and after a good read over coffee and biscuits it was to the cutting and sewing.
    Cutting was so easy as the pattern pieces are clearly labelled with how many to cut and where to place pattern piece.
    Sewing was a dream, apart from a little top stitching on the pocket, all of the construction was done on the serger (overlocker) and was done in under an hour.
    Now for the fit which always makes me nervous as at 6’2” things normally look a bit odd. IT FITS!!!!!!! PERFECTLY!!!!!!
    The only problem I have is getting it off him to wash……that’s the biggest compliment I could ever get. He now has an interest in fabric only so he can choose the colors for his next one lol
