Have I mentioned that I am absolutely, 100% in LOVE with the Hibernation Hoodie?! I’ve decided to make the CHILD sizes of this pattern free crochet patterns. Scaled-down versions of the adult Hibernation Hoodie so you can make one for yourself, and then another one for your little one. ♥

Hibernation Hoodie Child Sizes

I don’t know that I’ve ever been more in love with a design. I love the collar on this hoodie pattern, I love the front pocket, the hood, and I LOVE the feel of that glorious Hygge yarn.

Pattern Notes:

Pattern written in US terms.

This pattern uses front post/back post crochet stitches. See a written and video tutorial for this stitch here.

Waistcoat stitch (wc) Similar to the single crochet, except you go into the post of the stitch from the previous row instead of the top of the stitch.

Make sure you stay LOOSE as you work!! It makes going into the stitch easier the following row. Measure periodically to make sure you’re on track.

Watch the Waistcoat Stitch tutorial before you start.

Place first sc of the row in the very first st. Place first wc st in very next post. End row with sc in last st, skipping last post. (for clarification, see photos of first stitch and last stitch placement)

Yarn substitutions

This pattern calls for Red Heart Hygge yarn, a size 5/Bulky weight yarn. Because this yarn is so much softer than a traditional bulky weight yarn, I find that it is very pliable and amazingly comfortable to wear. If you use a different bulky weight yarn, that WILL work, but you may find the finished product to be a bit stiff. This stiffness will get better with laundering the hoodie, or you could opt to use a worsted weight yarn instead. Note that the gauge is the same whether you are using worsted weight OR the Hygge (bulky weight/size 5) yarn. That being said, if worsted weight is used in substitution for the Hygge/bulky weight, you may need a bit more of it.

Hibernation Hoodie 6/9 month hoodie crochet pattern

6/9M Back:

Row 1: Ch-29, Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each to end. (28)
Rows 2 – 19: Ch-1, turn, Sc in first st, Wc in next 26 sts, Sc in last. (28)
*should be ~11.25” wide*
Row 20: Ch-1, turn, sl st in first 3 sts. Wc in next 22 sts. (Leave last 3 sts unworked) (22)
Rows 21 – 35: Ch-1, turn, Sc in first st, Wc in next 20 sts, Sc in last. (22)
Fasten off with tail long enough to sew shoulders later.

6/9M Front:

Row 1: Ch-28, Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each to end. (27)
Rows 2 – 18: Ch-1, turn, Sc in first st, Wc in next 25 sts, Sc in last. (27)
*should be ~10.75” wide*

Separate into left & right:

Row 19: Ch-1, turn, sc in first, wc in next 11 sts. (12)

Row 21 – 35: Ch-1, turn, sc in first, wc in 9 sts. Sc in last. (11)

Turn work (so that what you have already completed is on the left) and attach in first/far right st from row 18. Complete “front” again to mirror other side, leaving 3 sts in between the left & right sides.

Sew the front to back at shoulders using the Mattress Stitch. Starting at the outside, sew top seam for 5 sts on each front to corresponding 5 sts on back. This will leave 6 unsewn sts on both fronts and 12 unsewn sts along the back for a total of 24 sts around neck opening. Do not weave in ends from sewing shoulders! We’ll use those tails to sew up any holes when done.

Hood:

Attach at either side of neck opening…

Row 1: Ch-1, sc in first st, wc in next 5 sts. Sc2tog (in the 2 sts at shoulder seam). Wc in each of 12 sts along back. Sc2tog (in the 2 sts at the shoulder seam), wc in next 5 sts, sc in last. (26)
Row 2: Ch-1, turn, sc in first, wc in next 5 sts. Sc in each side of sc2tog from last row. Wc in next 12 sts, sc in each side of sc2tog from last row. Wc in next 5 sts, sc in last. (28)

Row 26: Ch-1, turn, sc in first, wc in 10 sts, wc2tog, wc2tog. Wc in 10 sts, sc in last. (24)
Fasten off leaving long enough tail to sew hood shut.

Sew Side Seams:

Lay front to back and line up sides. Starting at bottom, sew row for row up to the row where you slip stitched – row 22 – going into the TOP of the stitches instead of the sides. Make sure that the remaining # of rows is equal on front and back. These two sides, along with the flat portion, will make up the complete armhole.

Hood edging:

Attach at bottom right of neck opening.

Row 1: Ch-1, wc in each st across flat edge. (3 sts so far) Turn to work up row ends.
* Sc in next 2 sts, Sc2tog * repeat between * * 9 more times, Sc in next 3 sts. (hood center – 37 sts total so far) Repeat between * * 10 times. Join to first Sc with sl st. (67)

Rows 44 – 59: Ch-1, turn, Sc in first st, Wc in next 25 sts, Sc in last. (27)
Fasten off with tail long enough to sew shoulders later.

4/5T Front:

Row 1: Ch-33, Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each to end. (32)
Rows 2 – 41: Ch-1, turn, Sc in first st, Wc in next 30 sts, Sc in last. (32)
*should be ~12.75” wide*

Separate into left & right:

Row 42: Ch-1, turn, sc in first, wc in next 13 sts. (14)

Row 44 – 59: Ch-1, turn, sc in first, wc in 11 sts, sc in last. (13)

Turn work (so that what you have already completed is on the left) and attach in first/far right st from row 41. Complete “front” again to mirror other side, leaving 4 sts in between the left & right sides.

Sew the front to back at shoulders using the Mattress Stitch. Starting at the outside, sew top seam for 6 sts on each front to corresponding 6 sts on back. This will leave 7 unsewn sts on both fronts and 15 unsewn sts along the back for a total of 29 sts around neck opening. Do not weave in ends from sewing shoulders! We’ll use those tails to sew up any holes when done.

Hood:

Attach at either side of neck opening…

Row 1: Ch-1, sc in first st, wc in next 6 sts. Sc2tog (in the 2 sts at shoulder seam). Wc in each of 15 sts along back. Sc2tog (in the 2 sts at the shoulder seam), wc in next 6 sts, sc in last. (31)

Row 38: Ch-1, turn, sc in first, wc in 14 sts, sc3tog. Wc in 14 sts, sc in last. (31)
Row 39: Ch-1, turn, sc in first, wc in 12 sts, sc2tog, sc, sc2tog. Wc in 12 sts, sc in last. (29)
Fasten off leaving long enough tail to sew hood shut.

Sew Side Seams:

Lay front to back and line up sides. Starting at bottom, sew row for row up to the row where you slip stitched – row 43 – going into the TOP of the stitches instead of the sides. Make sure that the remaining # of rows is equal on front and back. These two sides, along with the flat portion, will make up the complete armhole.

Hood edging:

Attach at bottom right of neck opening.

Row 1: Ch-1, wc in each st across flat edge. (4 sts so far) Turn to work up row ends. * Sc in next, Sc2tog, Sc2tog * repeat between * * 10 more times, Sc in next st. (hood center – 38 sts total so far) Repeat between * * 11 times. Join to first sc with sl st. (71)
*if there is a small hole where you joined, that’s okay. We’ll sew it together when we’re done.

Row 2: Turn work so you’re looking at the inside. Ch-1, bphdc around very first st (the last Sc2tog from the previous row) * fphdc around next, bphdc around next * repeat between * * 32 more times. Do not join. (this side will remain loose until finished and sewn) (67)

Row 5: repeat row 3 (67)

Row (6): Sl st in flat edge. Turn work so you’re looking at the inside. Ch-1, Sc in each st around. (67) Fasten off leaving decent size tail for sewing. Position edging so the entirety overlaps and sew sturdily into place as pictured.

Line up sleeve seam with center of armhole. Use st markers to hold it in place in several places around while you sew the two pieces together using the Mattress Stitch, going into the TOP of the stitches instead of the row edges. (see photos)

Once sleeves are attached, add ribbing to bottom cuffs by attaching yarn at seam…

Row 1: Ch-1, * fphdc around next, bphdc around next * repeat between * * around. Fphdc around last, join to top of first fphdc with sl st. (17)
Row 2: Ch-1, turn, * bphdc around next, fphdc around next * repeat between * * around. Bphdc around last, join to top of first bphdc with sl st. (17)
Row 3: repeat row 1
Row 4: Ch-1, sc in each st around. Join with Invisible Join. Weave in all ends.

Pocket:

Row 1: Ch-21. Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each to end. (20)
Rows 2 – 10: Ch-1, turn, Sc in first st, Wc in next 18 sts, Sc in last. (20)
Row 11: turn, sl st in first 4 sts, wc in next 12 sts, leaving 4 sts unworked. (12)
Rows 12 – 20: Ch-1, turn, Sc in first st, Wc in next 10 sts, Sc in last. (12)

Pocket side ribbing (where still attached):

Fasten off. Attach yarn at other side, in the first st from row 10 of pocket. Repeat ribbing to mirror other side. When finished, sc across top edge. Fasten off leaving long enough tail for sewing pocket to front.

Position pocket ~7 rows up from bottom hem. Play around with placement, pin into place, and sew together sturdily.

Bottom ribbing:

Attach yarn at either bottom seam…

Row 1: Ch-1, * fphdc around next, bphdc around next * repeat between * * around. Fphdc around last, join to top of first fphdc with sl st. (65)
