I finally made a Summit Peak Hoodie (New Horizons Designs) for my son, and he is sooo happy with it that he agreed to have this photos taken at 7 am before going to school, and he is NOT a morning person! He is now hoping that the weather gets colder soon! 😀
The pattern has a hoodie and a zip up option, princess seams, inseam pockets, and a fantastic cowl hood.
What is also great about it is that this kids version goes up to size 16, perfect for the tweens in our lives!
As I mentioned before, my kids are on a size limbo… too big for most kids patterns but not big enough for the adult ones. So finding patterns like this on that has a wider size range for kids is GREAT!
I made size 14 for him and I love the fit! No changes or modifications… love love love!
I used french terry for the body, sleeves and outer hood. The hood lining and pockets are cotton lycra and the bands are ribbing.
The cowl hood is perfect for windy and cold weather, especially when you’re on a bike (I’m in the Netherlands, cycling is a must 😉 ).
This boy is really picky about what patterns and styles he likes and this one definitely made the top of the list!
Samantha left for a school camp this morning and kindly reminded me that her Summit Peak is getting a bit small, so she would not mind at all if I had a new one ready for her when she got back home on Friday… So I guess this mama has some more sewing to do! 😀
