My design ideas and advice: This pattern was designed because a knitter asked me to! It is based on a hoodie I designed over 15 years ago and she wanted a new version as my previous design used discontinued yarns and so I designed this for her….and me. I love this shape and garter stitch is always my go to stitch technique that makes me feel calm. This is a great My First Sweater project – the only picking up is for the hood and that is very little.
