Awww….. please hold on a moment while I die of the cuteness. Seriously, though, this is just such an incredibly cute project and brilliant idea. I know that children of all ages are going to want this one.
Jess Copporn of Make & Do Crew has designed this project using Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick and it’s written for toddler/preschooler size, but feel free to adjust it slightly to make it larger for an older child. Head size doesn’t change much until about 8 years old, so you should have no problem with adjusting.

My son is 12 but I’m sure that he wouldn’t mind a hooded blanket to keep him warm while doing his school work or playing at the computer. I’ll bet I could even customize this one to look like an ocelot in Minecraft.
Thank you, Jess! I think you’ve just given me the idea for a great gift for my little man! It gets a bit chilly in this old house and this is perfect. He can easily keep it on his shoulders without having to constantly hold it. You are brilliant!
