Modification Monday: Hooded Coat Extension Panel



Original Pattern: Skoodlet

Knitter Extraordinaire: Caitlin (Ravelry ID, Blog)

Mods: Altered the scarflet sections of the skoodlet to the center back panel, and added a kangaroo pocket to keep her hands warm while carrying her little one. Project pages with great details can be found here.

What Makes This Awesome: I don't even have a kid, but when I do, I'll be knitting one of these! What a great way to keep your little one warm during the chilly winters. I love how it buttons right onto her coat, and the pocket for her own hands is such a clever way to stay warm and give your baby a little extra snuggle. It's genius.

I wish this would have been around when my girl was a babe. She is a mover, so before she could move on her own, to keep her happy we had to walk. And walk. And walk. I wore her in various slings, walking all over my city all winter long.
