Children's Houston Hoodie Free Crochet Pattern

Since I first created the adult Houston Hoodie crochet pattern I’ve received requests for a Children’s Houston Hoodie Crochet Pattern. I’m happy to say I’ve finally created it! 

Pattern Details

The Children’s Houston Hoodie comes in children’s sizes 2-12! 

I used * Knit Picks Brava Worsted for my son’s hoodie, however, you can use any #4 worsted weight yarn you’d like. 

The Children’s Houston Hoodie is a top down workup, with the sleeves and hood added at the end. 

Be sure to check out the Houston Hoodie in adult sizes too!

Row 2: (RS) Ch 2, turn, 1 dc in each st across. (70)

Rows 3-25: Repeat rows 1 and 2.

Add more rows if you need a higher hood.

Turn hood inside out, fold in half, sl st the stitches together at the top. Fasten off. Weave in all ends. Block if needed.

Optional Pocket

Ch 30 (32, 34, 36, 38, 40)

  1. Hey.
    Is there a video of you Malung this hoodie? I’m somewhat of a beginner and not really sure about all the parts, such s the hem and hood.
    Maybe there’s a video I’ve missed? Love your work though. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Hey again.
    Ok too bad there’s no video.
    At which point do you crochet the garment together? Before you crochet the hem?

    1. You don’t have to crochet anything together. It’s all worked in one piece. You’ll just join yarn yarn to the body for the hood, sleeves, and hem.
