Bernat Baby Coordinates Hoodie Jacket

This crochet hoodie might be the cutest thing anyone has ever seen. The Bernat Baby Coordinates Hoodie Jacket will keep baby both warm and stylish. Bernat Baby Coordinates’ yarn is super soft, has a lovely shimmer and is machine washable -- making it a hit with mom and dad!

Use a gauge of 15 hdc and 10 rows (4") to crochet a hoodie that measures 17 (18, 19)" for a chest measurement & 19 (20, 23)" for a finished chest. Be sure to check your gauge. If it takes you fewer stitches to match the gauge, try using a smaller size hook; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size hook.
