As the parent to the Little Joey Kangaroo Hoodie, this sweater is also named for named for it’s kangaroo pocket and soft, warm hood. As with the baby and toddler version, this pattern utilizes Berroco Comfort, a worsted weight yarn making this sweater quick to knit and easy to care for as it is machine washable.

The deeper V-Neck on the adult version makes for a comfortable, casual sweater. While The Striped Kangaroo Hoodie pattern utilizes different colors than the Little Joey Kangaroo Hoodie, either sweater could be done any color combination you like, even matching.

After receiving a number of questions about the Ears from from the toddler version, I will email you a copy of the ear pattern from the Little Joey Kangaroo Hoodie should you feel so inclined to put them on this version. Please send an email to projecthallway AT with a copy of your receipt to request the Ear portion of the pattern.

As I am a petite, 5’1″ to be exact, I often find that I have to fuss to get things to fit me properly. I have thus included Petite Sizing in this pattern. These instructions always follow the regular sizing and are located in within the curly brackets {}. The Petite sizing will work best for women 5’4″ and under.

As I am always working to improve my patterns, and create new things, I welcome all feedback. Please feel free to email me questions, errata or feedback at: projecthallway AT or leave a comment on my here on my blog.
