This child size version of the Austin Hoodie is a fun and easy piece for the little ones. Some details have been tweaked with the smaller customer in mind – it’s worked at a tighter gauge for hardier wear, buttonholes have been added to the band, the turned hems have been replaced by simple garter edges, waist shaping has been eliminated, and the hood is topped by an elfin point.
