So warm and comfy! The Kokanee Hoodie features an easy raglan style that can be made with three different color-block options and a choice to two completely different pocket styles.

It is also suitable for other stable knits with a minimum of 30% stretch, such as french terry or minky. Choose from a kangaroo or inseam style pocket. The hood can be fully lined with a thin knit such as cotton/Lycra, or can be finished with a woven bias facing.

    Kokanee Fleece Hoodie

    Really nice hoodie pattern. This makes up beautifully. I love the color blocking and the different versions. Also, the wide size variety helps so much since I have many grandchildren from 6th grade to 2.5 yrs!! Pollywoggles patterns are really well designs and directions are great.

    Made my son a true to size bee/elephant hoodie using this pattern. He picked all his fabrics and wears his sweatshirt daily. All his siblings are waiting for their versions!

Kokanee Glacier Park is one of the oldest provincial parks in British Columbia, Canada.  It is ruggedly beautiful backcountry, high in the mountains where rocky slopes and high-altitude plants make a beautiful backdrop for adventure hikers wishing to travel the paths originally used by miners in search of gold and silver.  The park protects significant Grizzly Bear habitat, and visitor use is carefully managed at times and in places where the bears are known to frequent.

The word "Kokanee" comes from the indigenous Okanagan language, referring to a land-locked variety of Sockeye Salmon.
