    I love this pattern! The instructions are very detailed and give a lot of extra info. The fit is perfect and because of the fleece it's supersoft to wear, so my little boy loves his coat!

Located in Nunavut, Sirmilik National Park is one of Canada’s most northern and remote parklands. 


​Sirmilik is an Inuktitut word meaning “place of the glaciers” and this landscape features ice floes, rocky cliffs, and glacier valleys.  Polar bears, arctic wolves and foxes, narwhals, caribou, and thousands of migratory shorebirds all call this area home.
