Pattern Description:

This comfy sweater is sure to become an instant classic. Easy on and off, easy to wear, and easy care for too. Plus it's knit all in one piece in the round, so no sewing is required.

The kangaroo pocket in front and the roomy hood set a casual tone, while the cable trims add a special touch. This oh-so-versatile sweater is a perfect piece for layering, or to wear in the autumn instead of a jacket. This pattern is called Children's Hoodie in the print book.
